Fatal Cherokee County Truck Crash Injures 2, Kills 1

On November 4, 2011, a deadly truck crash in Georgia occurred near the Cherokee-Bartow line. According to officials, the fatal accident happened around 3:15 PM on Knox Bridge Highway near Sutallee Baptist Church.

U-Turn in Front of Truck May Have Been Responsible
The accident involved a Saturn sedan and a tractor-trailer truck. Investigators indicated that it appeared the Saturn attempted to make a U-turn in front of the truck, causing the truck to strike the Saturn and send the vehicle off the road.

The two-vehicle accident caused serious injuries and one fatality. The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office identified the victims of this Knox Bridge Highway accident to include:

  • 23-year-old Barry Allen Freman, of Adairsville – he was the passenger in the back seat of the Saturn who was tragically killed.
  • 29-year-old Richard Bagley, of Cartersville – he was the driver of the Saturn who sustained injuries to his arm and was flown to Grady Hospital in Atlanta.
  • 37-year-old Matthew Wilcox, of Cartersville – he was the front seat passenger in the Saturn who sustained serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to a Marietta hospital.
  • 33-year-old Brian Moore, of Jackson – he was the truck driver who was not injured in this crash.

Police are still investigating the cause of this accident, and no citations have been given at this time.

Kalka & Baer would like to wish all those injured in this crash a full and speedy recovery and would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of Barry Allen Freman.
