Four injured in Marble Hill crash



Four people were injured in a two-car wreck Friday on Highway 53 in Marble Hill. Two of those hurt were airlifted in separate helicopters after the collision in a section of curves east of the Huber marble plant.

Accident reports from the Georgia State Patrol indicated that an Oldsmobile driven by Sandra Summers of Cumming crossed the centerline and the driver lost control as she tried to correct. The Oldsmobile hit a Toyota Camry driven by Ashley Murphy of Ball Ground.

Summers received head injuries and was taken by lifeflight to the Atlanta Medical Center. Her 17-year-old daughter was also injured and taken by lifeflight to Atlanta Medical Center with broken bones and lacerations.

Murphy and a third passenger with Summers were taken by ambulance to a hospital.

Tim Nichols, the commander of the Georgia State Patrol Post in Jasper, said  all occupants were wearing seatbelts and airbags deployed properly.

The passengers who were transported by helicopter were first driven to the IGA grocery store parking lot. Highway 53 remained closed for about an hour and a half while crews worked to free the injured occupants and clean up the wreckage.
