Cold Weather Causes Multiple Wrecks In North Georgia

NORTH GA,(WDEF)- "Slow down on these roads don’t be speeding"

Judy Dawkins tells News 12 she was heading to Walmart when her Jeep was hit by this SUV and she spun out of control fearing for her life.

Her story is one of dozens from across Walker, Whitfield and Catoosa counties, which are now littered with wrecked and abandoned cars.

William Cotterman of Durham’s Wrecker Service Lafayette, GA,"He flipped it over, landed it back on its wheels he started headed home, so he flipped over but he never did stop going and called us up and said hey there was a tree fell on my car."

William Cotterman of Durham’s Wrecker Service has been up since 6am Tuesday.
      He says his crew will rotate constantly over the next 48 hours towing needy SUV’s, Trucks and cars from across North Georgia.
    
"Try and dress warm, if you get out here in this kind of weather you get stuck or stranded and your car breaks down and you got no heat, make sure you bring some food with you."

Tires @ Cost have been also kept busy since early Tuesday with customers from rural communities needing  changes.

"My best suggestion is have good tires, air pressure is one of the main factors and cold weather can cause problems on the road with your traction sliding."

Everyone we spoke to advise keeping bottled water in your car and  having your phones charged at all times.

    Georgia motorists have been advised to stay indoors and only drive if necessary tonight and into tomorrow morning.
