Second woman in 3-day span dies in crash


In separate car crashes Nancy Yeakel and Eden Hersh die


April 04, 2014
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A 74-year-old woman died as a result of injuries received in a two-car collision in south Forsyth County on April 3.

Nancy Yeakel, 74, of Johns Creek, died at North Fulton Hospital in Roswell after she was involved in the mid-morning crash on April 3.

The crash happened about 11 a.m. at the intersection of Johns Creek Parkway and McGinnis Ferry Road. Yeakel was driving a 2006 Toyota Avalon southbound on Johns Creek Parkway when a 2013 Jeep Patriot, driven by Eric V. Hasslock, 39, of Cumming, was traveling westbound on McGinnis Ferry Road. According to preliminary reports, Hasslock failed to stop at a red light and collided with Yeakel's Toyota Avalon, striking it on the driver's side door, according to Forsyth County deputy first class Mike Nelson of the crash investigations unit.

Yeakel and Hasslock were taken by ambulance to North Fulton Hospital.

Hasslock remains hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.

This marked the second motorist in less than a week to have died on the road.

Another Johns Creek woman, Eden Sara Hersh, 50, was killed in a single-vehicle collision on March 31 on Ga. 400 in Forsyth County.

Hersh was traveling southbound on Ga. 400, just north of the McFarland Boulevard exit, around 8:15 p.m. when her Honda Pilot left the roadway and struck a concrete pole, according to Nelson.

Hersh was also taken to North Fulton Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Hersh was alone in the car and no other vehicles were involved.
