Three killed in Barrow County wreck
Three people were killed in a head-on collision in Barrow County on Hwy. 11 South at 1:05 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Captain Dennis Dorsey of the City of Winder Police Department said officers responded to the scene in reference to a head-on collision. After talking to a witness it appears that one of the vehicles involved was passing on a double yellow line striking the other vehicle head on.
Dorsey said when officers arrived both vehicles, a Dodge Neon driven by Levi Brooks, 18, Statham, and a Mercury Grand Marquis driven by Wilber F. Taylor, 71, Monroe, were fully engulfed in flames. Deputies from the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office were already on the scene and were trying to free several of the occupants from the vehicles. Winder officers used their fire extinguishers to suppress the fire to help the deputies remove three individuals from the vehicles, one later died.
Taylor was killed in the crash. Brooks was injured and transported to Gwinnett Medical Center. Front seat passenger in the Mercury, Taylor’s wife, Dorothy Jean Pike-Taylor, 70, Monroe, was killed. The back seat passenger in the Mercury, Gerald Whitlow, 65, Winder, was injured and transported to Grady Hospital. A passenger in the Dodge, Derrick Banks, 21, Bethlehem, died after being pulled from the burning car.
Dorsey said two accident reconstruction officers are on the scene helping to determine which vehicle was at fault in the accident.
