The Rome News-Tribune reports the Rev. Nim Russell, pastor at Thankful Baptist Church, died in the wreck just west of Adairsville around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.
State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright says a pickup truck driven by 47-year-old Michelle Blum crossed the center line on Georgia 140 and crashed into the car driven by Russell.
Blum and her passenger, 46-year-old Charles Louis Blum, were taken to a hospital for treatment. A passenger in Russell’s car whom Wright did not identify was also taken to a hospital.
Authorities continued to investigate the crash. Wright said any potential charges would be decided upon after the investigation is complete.
