Woman dies in crash on Dahlonega Highway



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A Cumming woman died just after noon on Nov. 27 after a three-vehicle crash on Dahlonega Highway at Punch Hammond Road in north Forsyth County.

Emily Osborn, 42, of Cumming, was pronounced deceased at the scene, according to Deputy First Class Phil Alexander, traffic specialist investigator for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

The accident occurred when Pedro Rolon, 61, of Cumming, was driving a 2000 Honda Odyssey northbound on Dahlonega Highway preparing to turn left on Punch Hammond Road. His car was stuck in the left rear by a 2008 Freightliner moving truck which was also northbound on Dahlonega Highway. The driver of the Freightliner was James Lumpkin, 41, from Cumming, and in the front passenger seat was Troy Lester, 22, from Cumming.

After impacting with the Odyssey, the Freightliner went into the southbound lane of Dahlonega Highway striking a southbound 2004 Toyota Camry on the driver’s side driven by Osborn. Lester was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Specialist Unit.
