A Dawsonviille woman was killed Wednesday morning when authorities say an SUV driven by a Gainesville man crossed the center line of Jot Em Down Road in North Forsyth County and struck the SUV she was driving.

Barbara Morgan Fowler, 71, was killed when the Honda CRV she was driving east was struck by a 2001 Toyota Sequoia traveling west at about 9:30 a.m. Oct. 24 near County Lake Road, according to Cpl. Doug Rainwater of the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office. The Toyota was driven by Sean Charles Campbell, 31, of Gainesville.

Rainwater said the force of impact from the collision took the vehicles off the roadway and into a nearby yard.

Fowler's husband, Robert Fowler, was riding in the CRV and transported to an area hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Campbell and a front-seat passenger in the Sequoia, Kelsey Sullivan, 23, of Forsyth County, received minor injuries and declined treatment at the scene, Rainwater said.

"This incident is under investigation by the (Traffic Specialist Unit) to determine what caused the Sequoia to cross over the center line," Rainwater said.
