Four cars were involved in a pile up on Washington Road near Woodbridge that backed up traffic as one of the drivers was extricated from his vehicle.

 

Two people were taken to a hospital after a four-car wreck on Washington Road in Evans Tuesday.

The wreck happened at about 1:45 p.m. on Washington Road at Woodbridge subdivision. Columbia County sheriff’s Deputy Ty Mobley said a westbound Ford truck driven by Nicholas Kamariotis, 53, of Appling, was stopped to make a left turn into the Circle K gas station. John Lindsey, 31, of Evans, stopped his Ford Expedition behind the truck.

The driver of a Subaru Forester, whose name was not immediately known, came up behind the Expedition, but didn’t stop. The driver veered left, clipping the back corner of the Expedition and careening into oncoming traffic, Mobley said.

The Subaru hit a, eastbound Ford Terminex truck, driven by Keith Griscowe, 36, head-on. Griscowe’s truck veered across eastbound lanes and slammed into an embankment. It took emergency personnel nearly an hour to extricate him from the truck.

The driver of the Subaru and Griscowe were taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center.

Lindsey, his mother and young son were not injured.

Mobley said the driver of the Subaru is at fault for the wreck. Charges are pending.
