Cartersville Police released a motor vehicle crash report Thursday of an accident that led to an arrest on Sunday, November 17th.
At around 2:19 on that clear and dry morning, a 2013 black GMC Acadia traveling north on Henderson Drive, attempted to make a left onto the lit intersection at West Avenue when a blue 2012 Ford F-150 traveling east on West Avenue drove through a red light and smashed the Acadia’s far left front, disabling both vehicles.
The driver of the Acadia, 37-year-old Lindsay Pike of Cartersville, was in critical condition after sustaining a suspected serious injury. She was cut out of the Acadia and airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital.
The driver of the F-150, 21-year-old Trey Daniel Wilson of Northwood, Ohio, was checked by EMS, but refused transport. He could not give a statement at the scene due to his alleged level of intoxication.
A witness said before the crash, she saw the F-150 run off the right side of West Avenue while traveling east. The F-150 backed up and got back onto the roadway at a high rate of speed. Then, she saw the F-150 run the red light and strike the Acadia.
Trey Wilson was arrested and charged with driving while his license was suspended or revoked, driving off a roadway laned for traffic, failure to obey a traffic-control device, hit and run, failure to report an accident resulting in injury, reckless driving, and driving under the influence of alcohol.
He was released on Tuesday on a $6,375 bond.
