Last updated Saturday, November 26th, 2022
A devastating thanksgiving truck crash in Georgia claimed two lives as their SUV was rammed by an oncoming vehicle on the morning of November 24 in Cherokee County.
The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office reports deputies were dispatched around 11:30 AM to Knox Bridge Highway near Scott Hudgens Drive in Canton in response to a four-vehicle accident. According to authorities, the driver of a Ford F-150 was heading east when it crossed the middle lane and crashed into a Nissan Armada.
A family of four was aboard the Armada, two of whom did not survive. The crash killed the 52-year-old father and his 18-year-old daughter, who was sitting in the back seat. The other two passengers of the car, the man’s wife and the other daughter were transported to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital with relatively minor injuries.
The driver of the F-150, a 24-year-old from Canton, also sustained minor injuries and was taken to the hospital.
The names of the victims had not been released by the authorities when this article was published.
Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office declined to comment on whether charges had been filed. The crash involved two other vehicles, but their passengers did not suffer any injuries.
A detailed investigation of the tragic accident is underway.
We offer our deepest condolences to the grieving family in their time of loss and pray that the injured recover soon.
