Vehicle Plows Through House in Cherokee County Car Crash

On Monday, May 7, 2012, a Georgia car crash occurred involving a car driving through a home. According to authorities, the crash occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon on Cedar Mill Crossing and Catawba Drive in Cherokee County.

Gordy McDowell, the homeowner, was at work in Atlanta when the car came barreling through his house and back yard. He received a phone call from one of his neighbors to let him know of the crash and the damage to his home.

Due to the wreck, tools, insulation, a Jet Ski, and all sorts of personal belongings were strewn throughout McDowell’s backyard.

When the car crashed through the Cherokee County house, the driver was ejected from the car. When Cherokee County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the accident scene, the driver was found alert and responsive and talking to paramedics. However, the 36-year-old driver appeared to have several injuries.

Investigators are hoping to speak with the driver to find out exactly what went wrong, as they are unsure whether the driver blacked out or if the vehicle had a mechanical failure.

Although no one was home during the Cherokee County car crash, McDowell’s two dogs were seen running away from the scene. One of the dogs has been found, but Dixie, a brown, medium-sized dog, is still missing.

McDowell is just glad that no one was killed in the crash. “Everybody’s OK, and that’s the best part,” he said.

Kalka & Baer would like to wish the driver a full and fast recovery.
