Driver Charged in Wednesday Night Wreck

A New York man who operated the motorcycle involved in the two-vehicle wreck sustained injuries, while a Dallas driver faces charges.

Authorities Thursday were still compiling an accident report on a Wednesday night crash that led to charges against a Dallas man and injuries to a man from New York.

Officials from the Georgia State Patrol told Dallas-Hiram Patch that the crash in front of Ingles on Atlanta Highway in Dallas happened about 6:05 p.m. Wednesday. Injured in the two-vehicle crash was 55-year-old William J. Manzo of Wallkill, N.Y. , who operated a motorcycle. The extent of Manzo’s injuries was not immediately known.

Manzo’s motorcycle had been struck by a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo driven by James Allen Skinner, 67, of Dallas. A trooper charged Skinner with failing to yield while turning left, serious injury by vehicle, driving without license on person and having no proof of insurance.

Return to Dallas-Hiram Patch for updates.

Wow. I saw that wreck on my way to church. It looked awful. I'm so glad to hear that the motorcyclist made it, I feared the worst. I'm just glad no lives were lost that evening. Thank you for the update.
