Two women died Thursday afternoon in a traffic accident on Highway 1 in Jefferson County.
Amy Caywood, 35, of Commerce, Ga., and Elise Cunningham, 49, of Louisville, died after their cars were struck by a man driving a U-Haul truck, according to Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Fay McGahee.
The U-Haul sideswiped Caywood’s vehicle, then struck Cunningham’s vehicle head-on about 2:45 p.m., McGahee said.
The driver of the U-Haul was airlifted to Georgia Regents Medical Center. His condition has not been released.
The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending, McGahee stated.
