House wreck

Charles Thompson (left) and Jimmy Loren (right) of C&B Foster Towing Co. survey a jackknifed tractor-trailer carrying part of a house that tried to avoid a vehicle that merged into the its lane on U.S. Highway 1 in Jefferson County.

The vehicle, a 1988 blue Ford Crown Victoria, swerved into the northbound lane after rear-ending a pickup truck that slowed down to let the tractor-trailer cross Floyd L. Norton Bridge.

Dorvin Holdman, of Stapleton, Ga., the driver of the Ford, is in critical condition at Medicale College of Georgia as of Friday night. He was the only one injured in the accident.
