Five people were injured in a two-car crash last Thursday on Highway 225 South just north of the speedway. It happened just before 2:30 p.m.

According to reports from the Georgia State Patrol, 48-year-old Mary Davis of Chatsworth was traveling north on the highway in a Honda Accord. She told Trooper Dan Burt that a bee had gotten in her vehicle and she began swatting at the bee, then realized she was on the wrong side of the road. She negotiated a curve and struck a Toyota Rav 4 driven by Dovline Allen, 70, of Acworth, GA, who was traveling south on the highway.

The two vehicles struck each other left headlight to left headlight.

After impact, the Toyota rolled over, ejecting a passenger, 69-year-old Eyionie Francis of Kennesaw. Another passenger, Julieth Robertson, 47, of Acworth was partially ejected and trappeed. She had to be extricated from the vehicle.

They were both airlifted to Erlanger Medical Center. Conditions were not available at press time.

Another passenger, 62-year-old Mynette Green of Smyrna and Allen were both transported to Murray Medical Center as was Davis.
