Authorities Friday morning reported that for about two hours left one dead and seven others injured.
Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright told Dallas-Hiram Patch that 69-year-old Janie Ruth Fournier from Dallas was killed in the wreck. She was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu south when she crossed the center line and hit a northbound 2007 GMC Yukon that was pulling a boat. The Yukon was driven by Theodore Vozzella, 41, of Dallas.
Fournier was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The crash happened some time before 5 p.m., as Paulding 911 announced via text message the closure of both lanes of travel near the 1200 block of Villa Rica Highway just after 5 p.m.; the announcement that both lanes had been opened back up came at 7:15 p.m.
Wright said troopers continue to work on the crash report. Dallas-Hiram Patch will bring you updates should they develop.
