According to Investigator Ron Tomblin of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Specialist Unit, the collision occurred at approximately 12:30 p.m. on Sunday near the area of 4403 Shiloh Road. A 2007 Suzuki Gran Vitara, being driven by Elizabeth Dickman, 49, of Ivey Springs Chase, Cumming, was traveling west on Shiloh Road when a 2011 Dodge Challenger, being driven by William Frank Cash, III, 29, of Shiloh Creek Court, Cumming, was traveling east on the roadway at a high rate of speed. Inv. Tomblin stated that the Dodge Challenger was traveling too fast to negotiate the curve and crossed over into the west bound lane, striking the Suzuki head-on.
After the impact, the Dodge Challenger left the roadway and went into a field, flipping over two and a half times and coming to rest on its passenger side about 150 feet from the roadway.
Inv. Tomblin stated that Ms. Dickman tried to avoid the collision, but was unable to do so. She was transported to North Fulton Hospital with minor injuries where she was treated and released. Three other persons were in the vehicle with Ms. Dickman. One person, age 17, was transported to the hospital with minor injuries where he was also treated and released. Two other persons, ages 17 and 14, who were seated in the backseat were not injured.
According to Inv. Tomblin, Cash was transported to North Fulton Hospital where he remains in serious but stable condition. He was alone in his vehicle.
Excessive speed was a factor in the collision, stated Inv. Tomblin. Charges are pending the outcome of the investigation into the crash.
