Construction workers still in hospital

SNELLVILLE - Two construction workers hit by a swerving car Tuesday remain at Gwinnett Medical Center with serious injuries, police said Wednesday.

One worker is still in critical condition and the other is in serious condition, police said.

The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon on U.S. Highway 78 at the intersection of Parkwood Road.

Gwinnett County Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Illana Spellman did not release the workers' names Wednesday.

The workers were hit by a driver attempting to avoid a collision with another car, police said.

Traveling east on U.S. 78, a 2001 Ford Taurus attempted to make a left turn onto Parkwood Road, a police report said.

A 2003 Nissan Sentra was traveling in the opposite direction on the same roadway when the driver of the Ford Taurus turned left in front of the second driver.

The Nissan's driver swerved in an attempt to avoid the collision and struck the construction workers on the side of the road, Spellman said.

The occupants of both vehicles were not injured.
