Five people were injured in a two-vehicle accident at about 1:55 p.m. Thursday on Ga. 365 near Jaemor Farms in eastern Hall County.

Hall County Emergency Management Agency Director David Kimbrell said one person was airlifted from the scene for medical treatment. Four others were transported by ground, he said. Two people had to be extricated from their vehicles, he said.

A 2006 Honda Accord traveling west on Jaemor Farm Road, attempting to cross Ga. 365 northbound, was hit in the left side by a northbound Honda Odyssey, according to Gordy Wright, public information officer for the Georgia State Patrol.

The Accord was driven by Billie Worley, 78, from Tifton, Wright said in an email. She was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center. Two passengers — Frances Jones, 81, and Joan Matthews, 73, both from Tifton — were transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

The Odyssey was driven by Robert Matthew King, 22, from Clarkesville. He and his passenger, Jamey King, 47, from Clarkesville were taken to the medical center.

Northbound traffic was backed up for a half-mile as law enforcement cleared the scene. By 3:30 p.m., Kimbrell reported the road had been opened.
