BANKS COUNTY, Ga. — Georgia State Patrol officials said a 48-year-old northeast Georgia woman was killed in a two-vehicle wreck Saturday afternoon in Banks County.
According to GSP Corporal Josh Hedden, Carol Lynch of Maysville, Ga., was on a curve on Georgia Highway 51 near Parsons Circle in Banks County at about 3:20 p.m., when her Cadillac SUV crossed the centerline and slammed into a Ford 500 passenger car.
Hedden said the SUV overturned and went down an embankment. The car slid off the roadway into a ditch.
He said that Lynch was ejected from the SUV and pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the car, 22-year-old Jessica Smith of Lula, Ga., was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
