All three occupants involved in a two-vehicle crash in Lula on Tuesday came away from the collision without life-threatening injuries, Georgia State Patrol Trooper Jonathan S. Munger said Wednesday.

Jonathan Woodring, 20, of Gainesville was driving a Chevrolet truck with a 17-year-old passenger southbound on Carter Street in Lula, while Roger England, 48, of Alto was traveling west on Athens Street in a 1995 Mack concrete truck, Munger said.

Woodring stopped at a stop sign but failed to yield the right of way to England. The concrete truck then struck the left front of the Chevy, overturning the concrete truck into an embankment on the north shoulder of Athens Street, Munger said.

The passenger in the Chevy was trapped inside the truck, while Woodring was ejected from the vehicle. The passenger had to be extricated.

Woodring was cited for “failure to yield after stopping at a stop sign” and not wearing a seat belt. Woodring’s passenger was also not wearing a seat belt, Munger said.

There were no charges for England.

All three were transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center for evaluation. Hospital officials said Woodring was in “fair” condition and his passenger was in an “undetermined” condition. No information was listed for England.
