Driver injured after SUV overturns on Downtown Connector 

A woman was injured Friday morning after her SUV overturned and shut down lanes on the Downtown Connector for nearly two hours. 

Just before 6 a.m., Kelly McBride was driving her Toyota 4Runner south on the Connector and attempted to get off at the Martin Luther King Jr. exit when she traveled into the path of an Ford F-150, Georgia State Patrol officials said. 

McBride lost control of the SUV, causing it to overturn, according to the GSP. Carlos Sotoz-Gomez, 21, of Norcross, was driving the truck and attempted to avoid hitting the 4Runner, but instead pushed it into a guardrail near the exit. He was not injured in the wreck. 

McBride, 55, of Clermont, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with injuries, the GSP said. She was also charged with improper lane change. 

The crash created a traffic nightmare.
