LAWRENCEVILLE — A three-car accident shut down Ga. Highway 316 eastbound lanes Monday afternoon.
The crash occurred at about 2:45 p.m. near Ga. Highway 120, Lawrenceville Police spokesman Capt. Greg Vaughn said. A westbound vehicle hydroplaned in the light rain and crossed the median, striking another car head-on. That car was then struck by yet another vehicle.
The driver of the car struck twice, identified only as a 24-year-old male, was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center complaining of chest and knee pain, Vaughn said.
“(Ga. Highway) 316 east was shut down completely for a short time for the towing company to remove the vehicle,” Vaughn said.
Motorists were urged to seek alternate routes.
