An Auburn man was killed and two others were seriously injured after a wreck on Sept. 11 in the Braselton area.

Georgia State Patrol troopers were called to SR 124 on Sept. 11 around 9:45 a.m. for a three-vehicle wreck.

A Ford passenger car driven by Stephen Bryant, 22, of Auburn, was traveling on SR 124 when Bryant failed to maintain his lane, according to the GSP. It's not clear why Bryant failed to maintain his lane.

The vehicle traveled into the westbound lane and sideswiped a Volkswagen Beetle driven by Sheila Freeze, 63, of Winder, before striking a Chevy panel van head-on.

The driver of that van, Lafonzo McLean, 44, from Lumber City, and a passenger, Jennifer Poston, 27, from Stone Mountain, were transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center Gainesville with serious injuries. Seatbelts were not used in the panel van, according to the GSP.

Bryant died at the scene.

Freeze was not seriously injured and was not transported.

Driver impairment is unknown at this time pending crime lab autopsy results.
