Two women die in separate Ga. 400 crashes


September 17, 2013
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A 60-year-old woman died Monday morning, Sept. 9, after being involved a fiery three-car accident on Ga. 400 southbound near Pilgrim Mill Road in Forsyth County. Maria Martinez of Cumming was pronounced dead at Northside Hospital-Forsyth.

On Tuesday Sept. 10, an 82-year-old woman was injured in a car crash on Ga.400 at Bottoms Road in Forsyth County. Rose Marie Robertson, of Gainesville, died of her injuries at Grady Memorial Hospital on Sept. 13.

On Sept. 9, Martinez was driving a 2009 Toyota Yaris coupe traveling southbound near Pilgrim Mill Road when she struck the rear end of a Freightliner tractor trailer, according to Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Nelson, traffic specialist investigator.

The impact from the collision sent her Toyota out of control striking a 2004 Ford Econoline van.

Both the Toyota and the Ford Econoline van left the roadway and came to a stop near the wood line. The Ford Econoline van erupted into flames. Three Good Samaritans stopped their cars and checked on both drivers. Because the Ford Econoline van was on fire, they pulled the driver from the driver's side. The driver of the van is physically challenged from a pre-existing condition and was unable to get out of his van. The van was equipped with a wheelchair and wheelchair lift.

On Sept. 10, Rose Marie Robertson was driving a 2008 Toyota Corolla when her car was involved in a crash with another vehicle.

Both crashes remain under investigation by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.
