Car Crash in Barrow County Kills Two

A vehicle driven by a Winder resident crossed the centerline on Ga. Highway 8 and collided head-on with another vehicle.

An auto accident along Ga. Highway 8 on Monday, Dec. 10, killed two people. 

According to the Georgia State Patrol, a 2003 GMC Envoy being driven by Winder resident Kristina Marie Brown was traveling eastbound on Highway 8 about 2:25 p.m. when the vehicle crossed the centerline and collided head-on with a 1992 Honda Accord being driven by Jess Willard Haygood, 80, of Norcross. Haygood and a passenger, Sara Pauline Haygood, age 67, also of Norcross, died in the crash.

Brown was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment. A blood sample was taken to determine if alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash. Charges are pending the completion of a follow-up investigation by the GSP Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team from Gainesville.

Two wonderful people will be missed. Sara and Willard were like a second set of parents to my husband. Our prayers are with their special family.
