Two killed in Tuesday crash on Ga. 400
Henry grady wreck
Two men were killed in a two-vehicle wreck Tuesday on Ga. 400.

A Dawsonville man and a Dahlonega man were killed on Ga. 400 yesterday in a two-vehicle wreck near Henry Grady Hwy.


According to a press release from Georgia State patrol, troopers responded to the wreck at 1:24 p.m. Dec. 10.


The release states that Tony Ray Chastain, 56, of Dawsonville, was driving a 2003 Lincoln Town Car traveling south on Ga. 400 in the left lane. Colquitt Juanez Thompson, 63, of Dahlonega, was driving  2015 Chevrolet Silverado traveling north on Ga. 400 in the right lane.


The release states that Chastain’s car left the roadway, crossed the median, traveled into the northbound lanes and collided head-on with Thompson’s truck.


Both drivers were pronounced dead on the scene. There were no other passengers in either vehicle.


The release states that both drivers were wearing seatbelts and that distracted driving does not appear to be a factor in the wreck. Drugs and alcohol are also not suspected.


Despite rainy conditions, the release states that wet roadways do not appear to be a factor either.


The northbound lanes of Ga. 400 were closed until 3:30 p.m. for investigation and cleanup.
