A 43-year-old Cumming woman is dead after a collision last night with a semitruck in Forsyth County.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and Fire Department responded to the area of Georgia Highway 20 at the entrance of the Lakeland Plaza shopping center regarding a vehicle versus a semitruck collision that had occurred at about 9:30 p.m.  

A 2011 Hyundai Sonata driven by 43-year-old Alison Flowers, of Cumming, was traveling westbound and entered the left-hand turn lane. At the same time a Freightliner semi-truck was traveling east bound in the right-hand straight lane on Ga. Highway 20 entering the Lakeland Plaza intersection on a green light. 

“The Sonata failed to yield to the semi-truck and turned in front of it,” Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Stacie Miller said.  

Flowers was pronounced dead at the scene.

This crash remains under investigation by Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Specialist Unit.
