A Canton woman was seriously injured and two others were hurt Sunday at about 11:55 a.m. when a tractor-trailer crossed the centerline and hit the car she was driving head-on in the accident on Highway 20 west of the Georgia National Cemetery, officials said.

Louella Ann Barber, 72, of Canton, was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital with serious injuries after a tractor-trailer traveling westbound on Highway 20 left the road in a curve, overcorrected and crossed the center line, striking Barber’s 2006 Nissan Pathfinder head-on, Georgia State Patrol spokesperson Tracey Watson said Monday.

“The tractor-trailer jackknifed and the Nissan overturned off the roadway,” Watson said. “A second passenger vehicle, a Toyota Corolla, then struck the rear tandems of the tractor-trailer.”

The driver of the tractor-trailer, Roman Tinajero, 40, of Quartz Hill, Calif., was charged with failure to maintain lane, driving too fast for conditions and driving on the wrong side of roadway, Watson said.

The second car involved in the wreck was a Toyota Corolla, driven by Trevor Lee Moyer, 18, of White.

Two passengers from the Toyota, Charles Moyer, 49, and Victor Moyer, 15, were also transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, Watson said.
