An elderly woman remains in critical condition after a Wednesday-morning crash near one of Bulloch County's most dangerous intersections.

Georgia State Patrol Senior Trooper T. Strickland said Dorothy Dungey, 85, Nevils-Groveland Road, suffered chest and head injuries after her car was struck by another around 8:39 a.m. at the intersection of U.S. 301 South and Ga. 46 Wednesday morning.

Dungey was driving south, approaching Ga. 46 when she turned left into the path of Lindsay Christine Sheahan, 21, Mourning Dove Lane, Cobbtown, he said.

Sheahan's 2004 Dodge Stratus struck Dungey's 1996 Honda Accord in the front passenger side, he said.

Dungey was rendered unconscious by the impact and was transported to a Savannah hospital by ambulance.

Sheahan suffered complaints of knee pain, Strickland said.

Charges are pending in the accident. Dungey will be charged with failure to yield and Sheahan was charged with a seatbelt violation.
