A 20-year-old man suffered serious injuries after a two-vehicle crash near the Pendergrass Flea Market.

Miguel Patino was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center Gainesville following the Jan. 4 wreck.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, Patino was turning left out of the flea market in a 2012 Hyundai Genesis, attempting to cross Hwy. 129. Patino failed to yield to a 2009 GMC Sierra driven by Denver Pittman, 43. Pittman was traveling east on Hwy. 129 towards I-85.

The front of Pittman's vehicle struck the driver's side of Patino's vehicle.

This is the second serious wreck at that intersection in recent weeks. Two teenagers were killed in a Dec. 21 wreck in front of the flea market.
