The Georgia State Patrol post in Rome has released it’s weekly accident report for accidents with injuries in Chattooga County.
An accident last week on Highway 27 at the intersection of Butler Dairy Road sent a Trion woman to Floyd Medical Center with injuries. According to the report, Carmen Ann Cecil of a First Street address in Trion was travelling south in the left lane of Highway 27 when she swerved to miss hitting a vehicle that was turning onto Butler Dairy Road.
Cecil’s 2000 Chevy Malibu began to travel sideways across Highway 27 and went across the northbound lanes of Highway 27. The car then overturned and struck a ditch.
Cecil told Troopers that she hit her brakes to avoid striking the car that was making a left hand turn on Butler Dairy Road.
