Cause of one fatal accident unknown; ID withheld in second

LAWRENCEVILLE - Authorities have yet to determine what caused a 22-year-old Lawrenceville woman to drive off the road Saturday causing an accident in which she died.

Gwinnett police said Aimee Ellison's 1999 Mazda 626 veered off the road about 8 p.m. and onto the shoulder while traveling north on Russell Road in Lawrenceville.

Police believe Ellison over-corrected after driving off the road and lost control of the car, which collided with a 2005 Ford Econoline Van.

Ellison was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the van was treated at the scene for minor injuries to his hand, officials said.

Another deadly accident in Lawrenceville on Saturday took the life of a man driving a 1991 Buick Regal, but police are not yet releasing the name of that driver.

The victim's car overturned after the man completed a U-turn on Buford Drive in Lawrenceville and struck a Chevrolet SUV.

The man reportedly lost control of the Buick after the collision, which caused his car to overturn.

Authorities said the driver of the Buick died while en route to the hospital.

The driver of the SUV was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center for minor injures. His condition was not available from authorities.

Police said neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have contributed to the accident.

According to authorities, no charges have been filed in either incident and investigations continue.
