Elderly Driver Killed Driving Wrong Way on I-985

An elderly motorist who was driving the wrong way on I-985 was killed in a four-vehicle crash in northern Hall County. The wreck occurred around 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday on I-985 northbound at Exit 24, the AJC reports.

According to Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright, Raymond Sanford Reed, 80, of Gainesville entered I-985 at Exit 24, going south on the northbound exit ramp and into the northbound travel lanes. He collided head on with a pick-up truck driven by Cresencio Martinez-Trejo, 54, of Gainesville.

Martinez-Trejo was then hit from behind by a Honda Civic, while Reed’s Buick was hit by a tractor-trailer. The drivers of the pickup and Honda, as well as two children in the Honda were treated at Northeast Georgia Medical Center and released.

As a result of the accident, the northbound lanes of I-985 were shut down for several hours, and reopened around 11 a.m.
