Franklin Teens Involved in Coweta County Auto Accident

Three Franklin teenagers were involved in a wreck Friday afternoon in Coweta County near Powers Crossroads.

According to Gordy Wright with the Georgia State Patrol, the one vehicle accident took place at around 3:25 p.m. on Handy Road in western Coweta County.

Reports show that a 2000 Buick LeSabre driven by Carson Lambert Noles, age 18, of Franklin was traveling eastbound when he lost control of the vehicle in a curve.

The vehicle rotated, left the road on the north shoulder, struck a culvert, became airborne, and struck a large tree.

Two passengers in the vehicle, Kevin Brent Baker, age 19, and Christina Lynn McNorton, age 17, both from Franklin were taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital for treatment of injuries.

A family friend at the hospital confirmed that the injuries were not severe or life threatening to either Baker or McNorton.

Noles was not injured and was charged with driving too fast for conditions.
