Head-on crash kills 1; two others injured

A two-vehicle crash killed one person on Friday night. Two others were transported to a local hospital.

Gwinnett Police Sgt. Brian Doan said a pickup truck was headed eastbound on U.S. 78 near Haynes Crest Drive near Grayson and Snellville while a minivan was headed in the opposite direction. The pickup truck crossed over into oncoming traffic and struck the minivan head-on, killing the driver of the minivan.

The incident happened near Haynescrest Drive at around 10:30 p.m, Doan said.

A 13-year-old was also inside the minivan and was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries. The driver of the pickup truck was transported with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor, Doan said.

The name of the deceased driver will not be released until the next of kin is notified.
