One critically injured in a wreck Monday afternoon has been released from the hospital and another is expected to go home today.

Kellie Anne Peppers, 37, of Winder, who was still at the hospital this morning, according to officials with the Northeast Georgia Medical Center, and John Daniel Mills Sr., 73, of Gillsville, were both taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center following a wreck on Candler Highway at Bolman Road.

Others hurt included Sabrina Mills Nix, 40, of Gillsville; Mason Charles Myers, 30, of Monroe; and Margaret Wade Mills, 63, of Gillsville. None of those were listed this morning at the Gainesville medical center. A 7-year-old girl in Nix’s car was uninjured.

The three-vehicle wreck happened at 4 p.m. when Peppers’ white Honda Odyssey crossed the center line on Candler Highway and sideswiped a Sysco Food tractor-trailer, driven by Myers, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Peppers’ minivan then struck Nix’s black Toyota Corolla, which was behind the 18-wheeler, officials said.

The state patrol investigated and cited Peppers for failure to maintain lane, officials said.
