FANNIN COUNTY, Ga – Two people are dead after a three-vehicle wreck on Ga. Hwy. 2 and Hwy. 515 in Fannin County Friday morning around 7:40 a.m.
According to a report from the Georgia State Patrol:
Margaret Fundis, 74, and her passenger, Dolores Ayers, 72, both of Blue Ridge, were pronounced dead at the scene after Fundis’s 2005 Toyota Camry side-swiped a Jeep driven by Richard Sailors, of Morganton. Both vehicles were traveling eastbound.
After the initial contact, Fundis stopped her car in the road and was rear-ended by a 2007 Toyota Sequioa SR5, driven by Sabrina Deyton, also of Morganton.
SFC Ensley who worked the wreck, said the sun in that area and time of day can be blinding, which he says was a contributing factor. Drugs and alcohol are not considered contributing factors in this wreck.
No charges will be filed against Sailors or Deyton. For other Fannin County news and to see the EMS weekly report, click here.
