Three people were killed in two separate wrecks in Banks County over a three-day period last week.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, at approximately 11:09 a.m. on Highway 15/441 near Sample-Scales Road two people were killed in a two-car wreck.
The driver of a north bound Nissan Altima, Brittany Rose Hester, 22, Baldwin, and her front seat passenger, Lyndon Anthony Hester, 25, Baldwin, were both deceased at the scene when the Altima left the roadway on the northbound left lane of Highway 15/441 on the west shoulder. Hester over corrected the Altima causing it to swerve right, then skid back left. The Altima went into a side skid crossing both lanes of Highway 15/441. The Altima then crossed the median sideways and into the southbound lanes of Highway 15/441.
A Honda Pilot, driven by Cynthia Bobo, 62, Sautee Nacoochee, collided with the Altima in the right hand southbound lane of Highway 15/441. The two vehicles hit at an angle on Highway 15/441. Both vehicles came to rest on the west shoulder of Highway 15/441 near the residence of 2036 Georgia 15 southbound, according to the Georgia State Patrol.
