GPD UPDATE: Mult-vehicle accident in W. Gainesville leads to DUI charge

It’s the accident that happened at Browns Bridge Road and Pearl Nix Parkway Wednesday night.


“On 10/04/23 at around 8:30pm we responded to Browns Bridge Road and Pearl Nix Parkway for a multi vehicle crash. A 2002 Ford F-250 travelling westbound struck a  2014 Dodge Avenger head on, thus causing a crash with 3 other vehicles behind the Dodge Avenger, for a total of 5 vehicles in the crash.

The driver of the F-250, Zackery Freeman Fulks, 31 of Gainesville, was found to be intoxicated and charged with DUI drugs, failure to maintain lane, failure to drive on the right side of the road and no seatbelt. The other drivers received minor injuries.”


Details are sketchy on both but the wreck on Browns Bridge Road occurred at Pearl Nix Parkway and, according to a number of social media posts, involved several vehicles.

The accident on Georgia 365 happened at Mt. Zion Road. According to the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office it was a rollover accident.

That’s the same intersection where three members of a Hall County Sheriff’s deputy were killed this summer, an accident took the lives of two other people. The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) recently awarded a contract to reconstruct the intersection in light of that crash and others that have occurred there.

No word on whether there were any injuries in either of the Wednesday night wrecks.
