One person died Tuesday night and four others were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital for various injuries after a head-on collision on Bells Ferry and Butterworth roads.
When crews from Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services and the Canton Fire Department arrived on the scene shortly after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, the 29-year-old driver of a Pontiac Grand Prix involved in the accident was trapped, two other male occupants had neck, hip and back pains, and one had a knot on his head, Cherokee Fire spokesman Tim Cavender said.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
In the Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck, a man had a cut to his forehead and a woman complained of ankle pain.
"Their injuries appeared to be minor," Cavender said, "but they were transported to Kennestone Hospital to be evaluated."
