Editor A 10-year-old and her 11-year-old sister suffered serious injuries when their John Deere utility vehicle was struck by a truck on Seven Islands Road.
Reagan Elizabeth Nash, 10, and her sister, Allie Noel Nash, 11, were both transported to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) following the Wednesday, July 10 collision.
According to Georgia State Patrol reports, a truck driven by Paul Christian, 64, Buckhead, struck the left front side of the utility vehicle driven by Reagan Nash near the 3000 block of Seven Islands Road at approximately 2:30 p.m.
Reports state that the utility vehicle was attempting to cross the road and failed to yield to the truck. Troopers marked a 50-foot skid mark on the road left by the truck and Christian told officers as he was applying brakes, he swerved from the westbound to eastbound lane to attempt to avoid the collision. Reports estimate that Christian was traveling the speed limit at the time of the crash.
After the utility vehicle was struck, reports state, it overturned in the road and Allie Nash was ejected.
According to information on a Facebook page tagged as “Pray for Allie and Reagan,” Reagan Nash was being released from CHOA and Allie Nash remains in an induced coma and developed pneumonia but, the post stated, her condition was improving.
No charges have been filed in the incident.
