BRASELTON — A woman driving on Ga. 211 in Braselton was killed Wednesday morning when she lost control of her car, according to emergency service officials.

The Gainesville office of the Georgia State Patrol confirmed that the accident was called in around 11:08 a.m. Wednesday morning and sent a unit to the scene, which arrived at 11:20 a.m.

The woman was driving her Chevrolet Corvette on Ga. 211 going east when she lost control of the car and drove into the westbound lane. The other driver, who was in a Dodge truck, hit the car on the driver’s side, Georgia State Patrol officials said.

Braselton Police Chief Terry Esco said the accident occurred near Riverstone Park subdivision past Thompson Mill Road.

"We think she hydroplaned. We know there’s a confirmed fatality and the other driver (in the truck) wasn’t hurt," Esco said.

Officials said they could not release the name of the woman who was killed in the accident.

The Georgia Department of Transportation and a unit from Hall County Fire Services also were on the scene.

Esco said Ga. 211 was temporarily blocked but has now been reopened.
