The Charger struck a southbound 2019 Ford Superduty pickup truck driven by Mark Martin, 59, of Cleveland.
The wreck seriously injured Carroll. It also injured his passenger, 61-year-old Donnie Lamar Carroll. Also, the 59-year-old Marin and his passenger, 47-year-old Tonia Martin of Cleveland all suffered non-life-threatening inures.
Medics transported all four injured people to Northeast Georgia Medical in Gainsville for treatment.
