Investigators indicated that two SUV vehicles collided a the intersection one of the vehicles overturned on its side and the driver and a passenger in that vehicle were trapped and needed extraction. The two injured individuals were conscious and were able to talk with EMT personnel. The decision was made to call in two helicopter air ambulances form Emory Air Flight based at the Griffin Spalding Airport and transport the individuals to the Atlanta Medical Center.
