A driver struck a guardrail about 6:30 a.m. Sunday in Gainesville before colliding with another driver, police said.

Both drivers were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in serious condition from a crash site at the intersection of E.E. Butler Parkway and Chestnut Street.

Caleb Castleberry, of Dahlonega, was driving a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country on E.E. Butler Parkway.

“He struck a guardrail on the passenger side near the intersection of (Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard),” according to the report. “(Castleberry) continued across the bridge and then struck a street sign in the median dividing north and south lanes.”

After crossing the median, Castleberry’s vehicle struck a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze driven by Sarah Allen, of Dacula, according to the report.

Both drivers were trapped inside their vehicles.

“(Castleberry) had been put into an induced coma,” according to the report, adding that Allen was receiving X-rays at the hospital.

Castleberry was in fair condition Tuesday, and Allen was in satisfactory condition, according to hospital officials.

No charges have been filed.
