An overturned Mack dump truck shutdown the intersection of Hwy. 9 and Dawson Forest Road for several hours Monday evening as crews attempted to clear the wreckage and an oil spill that resulted from the crash. Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman Robin Stone said the driver, 41-year-old Robert Edwin Saye of Gainesville, was cited for driving too fast for conditions, failing to maintain lane and an unsecured load. Saye was taken by ambulance to Northeast Georgia Medical Center for injuries sustained when the truck overturned just after 5 p.m. His condition was unknown as of Tuesday afternoon.
