One dead, five injured in Catoosa County car crash

CATOOSA COUNTY, Georgia (WDEF) — A head-on collision between two cars turned fatal Thursday afternoon in Catoosa County.

GSP reports that at 3:15 p.m., Troopers responded to a crash at 1875 Holcomb Road.

Severe damage can be seen here to both vehicles, but particularly to that silver Mustang, which was left totaled from the impact.

The investigating Troopers determined that the Mustang was operated by 21-year-old Damien Crum and occupied by three other passengers, including a three-year-old and a six-month-old.

Their vehicle was traveling east on the road.

Crum crossed over the centerline and struck a silver Dodge Ram 2500 head-on that was traveling west.

The Dodge Ram was operated by 38-year-old Ashley Knox and occupied by eight-year-old Kyle Knox.

The other driver and all other occupants sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to hospitals here in Tennessee.
