The Gwinnett County Police Accident Investigation Unit is currently investigating a serious injury accident that occurred at Hwy 78 at Hoke O'Kelly Mill Road at 8:48 p.m. Sunday evening, according to GCPD spokesman Sgt. Brian Doan.
Doan said early investigations show that a passenger car was travelling on Highway 78 eastbound and attempted to turn left onto Hoke O'Kelly Mill Road. This car was hit by a pick up truck traveling westbound on Highway 78. The pick up truck then struck a second passenger car waiting to turn onto Highway 78 from Hoke O'Kelly Mill Road. The occupants of the second car were not injured, but the driver of the first passenger car was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville. Doan said as of 12:30 a.m., the accident victim was in a critical condition.
An update on charges and names of the drivers is pending.
