2 die in head-on crash in GA

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Gwinnett County authorities say two people have died in an early-morning car crash.

Police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter says the accident happened around 5 a.m. Monday.

Fire department spokesman Lt. Eric Eberly says emergency personnel responding to the accident quickly determined that the drivers of both cars in the head-on crash were dead at the scene.

Eberly says it appears an eastbound vehicle crossed the center line and hit the other vehicle, which was traveling west.

The accident completely shut down Patterson Road in Lawrenceville.
