Three people were killed in two separate wrecks in Banks County over a three-day period last week.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, at approximately 11:09 a.m. on U.S. 441 near Sample-Scales Road two people were killed in a two-car wreck.
The driver of a northbound Nissan Altima, Brittany Rose Hester, 22, Baldwin, and her husband, Lyndon Anthony Hester, 25, Baldwin, both died at the scene when the Altima left the roadway on the northbound left lane on the west shoulder. Hester over-corrected the Altima, causing it to swerve right, then skid back left. The Altima went into a side skid, crossing both lanes of U.S. 441, then crossed the median sideways and into the southbound lanes.
