WINDER -- Investigators suspect alcohol was a factor in a crash that killed three people in Barrow County.

The Georgia State Patrol says 53-year-old David Varnum, 61-year-old John Collins and 54-year-old Wanda Collins were killed late Saturday on Georgia Highway 82. Police say a 1995 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Varnum crossed the highway's centerline and struck the Collins' Ford Taurus.

Authorities say they will conduct a post-mortem blood test on Varnum to determine whether he had been drinking.
