MCDONOUGH — Henry County police are awaiting test results in two unrelated crashes that killed three people last week.

Lt. Joey Smith said Jason Clack, 31, of McDonough was killed Oct. 14 about 7:40 p.m. when the Suzuki motorcycle he was operating hit a 2014 Toyota Prius. Smith said Clack was traveling east on Campground Road and the Prius was traveling north on Palmer Road. When the Prius pulled out onto Campground Road, it was hit by the Suzuki, said Smith.

“Speed and reckless driving may have been a contributing factor in the accident and is still under investigation,” he said. “At this time, there are no signs of drugs or alcohol being contributing factors.”

Smith said Henry County police are waiting on official results from Georgia Bureau of Investigation to determine if Clack was under the influence.

The driver of the Prius and its two passengers were released at the scene with no injuries, he said.

A head-on collision caused by a wrong-way driver on I-75 early Friday morning claimed the lives of two women, said Henry County police Lt. Mike Ireland. Sherry Williams, 51, of Atlanta died after being taken to Atlanta Medical Center and Christina Rearley, 23, of Palmetto, Fla., was dead at the scene, he said.

Williams was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu north in the southbound lane of I-75 about 1:38 a.m., said Ireland. The Malibu crashed head-on into a 2002 Mitsubishi Mirage driven by Rearley in the left southbound lane of I-75, he said.

Passengers in the Malibu, a boy, 15, and girl 4, were taken to Children’s Egleston to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Ireland said police are awaiting test results from GBI to determine if the driver was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
