Crash involved two cars, two dump trucks



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A 58-year-old Dawsonville man died Aug. 12 when he was involved in a four vehicle crash just after 6 a.m.

Gerard “Jed” Lacey was pronounced dead at the scene on Ga. 400 southbound just north of Bald Ridge Marina Road in Forsyth County.

Lacey was driving a 2012 Dodge Ram southbound in the left lane when he entered the right lane.

The front passenger side of the truck then struck the left rear side of a 1987 Kenworth dump truck, driven by Reginald Davis, 52, of Atlanta.

The Dodge Ram began to spin sideways and was struck by a 2007 Mack dump truck in the left lane driven by Tony Thomason, 42, of Lavonia, Ga.

A 2017 Subaru Outback, driven by Elizabeth Gallagher, 33, of Cumming, was struck by a rear tire from the Mack, and then the Subaru struck the Kenworth.

The Dodge Ram had two juvenile passengers in the back seat who were both taken to a local hospital. One has been released and the other remains in the hospital.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Specialist Unit.
