A Honda Accord was traveling east on U.S. 278 in the right turn lane attempting to turn onto Ga. 101 South.

A tractor trailer was traveling north on Ga. 101 and was at a stop for a stop sign at the intersection of 278.

A Chevrolet S-10 was traveling east on 278 and entered the right turn lane for Ga. 101 behind the red Honda.

The Honda veered to the left to avoid being struck by the S-10.
