Coroner says victims of fatal wreck are from Hall, Paulding counties

 

 

Four of the seven victims who died in Saturday’s crash on Interstate 85 in Franklin County are from Hall County.

The wreck happened shortly after 1:30 p.m. on I-85 south of Carnesville when a Ford Excursion crossed the median and struck two other vehicles, including a Chevrolet work van that was traveling in the left southbound lane.

The Hall County victims were traveling southbound in the Chevrolet work van.

Franklin County Coroner Scott OBarr on Sunday identified those victims as Alejandro Agis Perez, 53; Noe Gutierrez Cerna, 39; Oswaldo F. Hi Navarrete, 25, and Eugenio Santoyo Serna, 36, all of Hall County.

Those killed in the northbound Ford Excursion include Chris Years, 33, Ashley Years, 34, and Luna years, 3, all of Paulding County.

Fireworks? Stay out of trouble under new Ga law.

Fireworks In Paulding County: What You Should Know

 

(Paulding County, GA)  As we all get ready to celebrate our nation’s birthday, many of you will have cookouts, pool parties, maybe catch a baseball game, or even shoot some fireworks.  But do you know what the law says about discharging fireworks?

 

What you may not know is that the Georgia General Assembly changed the times on when you can legally ignite fireworks last year.  The new law went into effect on July 1, 2018.

 

Now you can legally discharge fireworks in the State of Georgia any day from 10:00 AM until 11:59 PM unless there is a local ordinance that prohibits them from being discharged that late.  Every county is different, but Paulding County DOES NOT currently have an ordinance which outlines when fireworks can be ignited.  With that being said, in Paulding County, we adhere to what state law says.  See OCGA 25-10-2 below for a full overview of the law.

  

As a point of clarification, it is illegal to use fireworks within 100 yards of any of the following locations no matter what time or day it is:

 

-Electric Plant                                  -Water Treatment Plant

-Waste-Water Treatment Plant  -Gas Station

-Refinery                                           -Electric Substation

-Jail or Prison                                   -Helipad

-Hospital                                           -Nursing Home

-Other Healthcare Facility

 

You cannot discharge fireworks in any park, historic site, or other state property.  You also cannot discharge fireworks while you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs and you have to be 18 years old to purchase them.  The below link has several quick facts to help keep you in the know about the current fireworks laws in Georgia.

Avoid 278/92 intersection until Saturday night

27 Jun 2019

Posted by GPatton in Fastread page
cc-5.jpgAvoid 278/92 intersection until Saturday night

That is the message that Curtis Carlin came away with after talking to the folks who are doing the construction of a new crosswalk scheme at GA 92 and US 278 in Hiram.

Carlin said the project supervisor recommended avoiding this intersection and points east on 278 and south on 92 as traffic had already backed up to the Cobb Line at 2:30p on Friday (June 27).

Carlin sent me a few more phocc-3.jpgtos for this story.  Construction should be completed by Saturday afternoon, the folks
overseeing the scene said.

Notably, the area is accessible but considering the normal congestion that occurs in this part of the county, this construction project has put congestion on steroids.

Feel free to comment on the issues you cc-3.jpgmay experience.  The belief is that the congestion may extend the time taken to travel through the area by up to an hour.

Still, the improvements will improve pedestrian traffic in the area.
