Car Goes Underneath Another in N. Hairston Wreck; No One Injured

The accident happened around 1 p.m. Wednesday.

A white Saturn crashed into and slid under a Dodge Stratus in an accident on N. Hairston Road near Memorial Drive Wednesday early afternoon. Amazingly, no one was hurt in the bizarre-looking wreck that even stunned firefighters.

H. Trotty said he's seen a lot of different types of accidents in his nearly 16 years with DeKalb County fire department, including cars that have gone under big trucks, but for a car "to go under the same size car? That's a first," he said.

The driver of the Stratus, Carmen Staley, said she was behind another car that was waiting to make a turn when the Saturn crashed into her car. She said the Saturn driver told her his brakes gave out. "He came and helped me out," Staley said.
