Life flight arrives at major wreck on Hwy. 53

All lanes of Highway 53 in Braselton were shut down last Thursday evening for nearly two-hours as crews worked to clear a wreck near the Hall/Jackson County line.

Trooper Land with the Georgia State Patrol said that a tractor-trailer driven by 61-year-old Carl Manning failed to yield the right of way and turned into traffic while trying to enter a Chevron.

A car traveling east attempted to avoid the collision by swerving into the turn lane. The vehicle and the tractor-trailer crashed head on. The tractor trailer came to rest on top of the car.

The driver of the car, 53-year-old Daniel Moye of Watkinsville, had serious injuries and had to be flown by helicopter to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.

The truck driver only complained of minor injuries.
