West Union man charged in Georgia wreck
Three people are recovering from injuries in a weekend accident in Stephens County. The accident involved a driver from West Union, South Carolina. The Georgia Patrol reported a Ford Ranger, driven by William Ralph Hogsed of West Union, was traveling west on 123 in the eastbound lane while negotiating a curve. Troopers say a Protégé, driven by Duluth, Georgia resident Timothy Andrew Morman, was traveling east and swerved to avoid the Ranger coming in the other direction. The Ranger also swerved and both vehicles collided. Morman and two passengers were taken to Stephens County Hospital. According to Toccoa’s WNEG, troopers quoted Hogsed saying he looked down and did not realize he was in the other lane. According to the Georgia Patrol, Hogsed was charged with failure to maintain lane, DUI-Less Safe, and possession of marijuana less than one ounce.
