Woman killed in Forsyth County collision

A woman involved in a collision in Forsyth County on Wednesday has died, the sheriff’s office said.

The crash that killed Jordan Banasiak occurred just after 7:40 p.m. on Buford Highway at the Ga. 400 North entrance ramp, Cpl. Doug Rainwater said Friday in a statement.

According to investigators, Vayid Dzhakhidov, 32, of Cumming, was driving a 2007 Honda Odyssey west on Buford Highway. His wife, 26-year-old Azru Mirbaeva, was in the front seat.

As Dzhakhidov approached the intersection with the Ga. 400 North entrance ramp, Banasiak turned left from eastbound Buford Highway in a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze, Rainwater said. The vehicles collided.

Banasiak, 27, of Cumming, was taken to North Fulton Hospital. She was pronounced dead Thursday, Rainwater said.
