A three-vehicle accident in Hall County ended with a woman dead, another woman facing a DUI charge and three people, including a 1-year-old, in the hospital, the Georgia State Patrol said.
Angela Riseden, 22, of Oakwood, was making a right turn from Valley Green Drive to Ga. 13 in her Toyota Yaris on Tuesday, GSP said in a news release. She failed to yield to Brittany Dade, 30, of Gainesville, who was driving her Ford Ranger south on Ga. 13, the release said. A 1-year-old child, Lucis Holloway, was also in the Ford.
Dade’s car hit the side of Riseden’s car, forcing Riseden off the road and Dade into northbound traffic, the report said. A third vehicle, a Nissan Versa driven by Kaitlin Loggins, 23, of Flowery Branch, was then hit by Dade’s car.
Riseden died at the scene, Dade and Loggins were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries and the toddler was flown to Scottish Rite Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the release said.
The GSP said Dade faces charges of DUI and endangering a child under 14 while under the influence.
As of 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dade was not booked into the Hall County Jail, according to jail records.
