A 22-year-old pregnant woman hit two vehicles before overturning her vehicle, seriously injuring her father, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Trooper Devon Fields said Amber Nicole Taylor’s vehicle, a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, was traveling north on Ga. 13 in South Hall County in the early evening of Oct. 9 when a Nissan passenger car turned out of Parks Road to go south on Ga. 13. Taylor’s car drifted into the southbound lane, striking the Nissan, Fields said.

Taylor’s vehicle then continued north and struck a Ford Explorer traveling south on Ga. 13, causing her car to go down a small embankment and overturn, Fields said.

Fields said Taylor, of Sugar Hill, was on medications, which she said were prescribed to her.

Bryan Taylor was seriously injured and both Taylors were transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center. A 4-year-old in the car was not injured.

Two people in the Nissan also were injured and transported to the hospital. Fields said they were released the same day.

Bryan Taylor spent longer in the hospital, but Fields said he believed he had since been released. Amber Taylor was held for observation due to her pregnancy and was not arrested immediately.

Fields said he told Taylor to turn herself in when she was released from the hospital. She was booked Wednesday into the Hall County Jail.

She faces charges including serious injury by vehicle, DUI of drugs, endangering a child by DUI, driving on a suspended license, failure to maintain lane and driving without a seatbelt.
