Shortly before 4:00 pm, volunteer fire departments from Sandersville, Rustin, and Powers responded to a two-vehicle collision near the intersection of Highway 11 and Erata Road.

Firefighters found a Chevy Trailblazer and a Toyota Tacoma involved in the accident about a half mile before Erata Road on Highway 11.

The Trailblazer rear-ended the Tacoma, causing it to spin around. The Trailblazer then continued to Erata Road, where it crashed and flipped onto its side.
