A three-car accident on Saturday, Feb. 22, resulted in two juveniles being life flighted.

According to a Cpl. Joshua Hedden with Georgia State Patrol Post 6, the accident occurred at approximately 12:10 p.m. on Ga. 11 (U.S. 129) and Joe Turner Road. The first vehicle was a 2005 Toyota Scion XA that was driven by Heather Morgan, 30, of Clermont, and had four juvenile passengers in the vehicle. The second vehicle was a 2004 Kia Sedona Van that was being driven by Samantha Loggins, 32, of Sautee Nacoochee, and had two juvenile passengers. The third vehicle was a 2006 Toyota Tundra being driven by Gary Olsen, 53, of Cleveland, and had one passenger, Tamera Olsen, 55, of Cleveland.

All three vehicles were heading north on Ga. 11, and the Toyota Tundra and Kia Sedona were stopped because the Toyota Tundra was waiting to turn left. According to Hedden, the Toyota Scion was following too closely and struck the Kia Sedona in the rear, which caused the Kia to hit the Toyota Tundra. 

Morgan and three of the juveniles were transported with minor injuries, while one was flown by life flight with a serious injury, according to Hedden. Loggins and one juvenile were transported with minor injuries, while the other juvenile was transported by life flight with serious injuries. Gary and Tamera Olsen suffered minor injuries, but were not transported. 

Hedden said that charges are pending.
