CHATHAM COUNTY, Ga (WSAV) – A crash on Fort Argyle Road sent three people to the hospital Friday morning.

According to the Chatham County Police Department (CCPD), the head-on collision occurred between a septic tank truck and a dump truck and shut down eastbound and westbound lanes near the 500 block of Fort Argyle Road for some time.

Officials say of the three people transported, the septic truck driver received serious injuries.

Georgia State Patrol (GSP) was called to the scene at the request of CCPD, arriving after 9 a.m.

Troopers say the dump truck was behind the pickup hauling a utility trailer. As the pickup was turning right onto Snow Green Road, GSP says the dump truck tried to pass it on the left in a no-passing zone.

The dump truck then struck the septic truck head-on.

News 3 is told the dump truck driver received non-life-threatening injuries. The septic truck also had a passenger who is expected to be okay, GSP said.

The dump truck driver is facing multiple charges including following too closely, passing in a no-passing zone and passing on curve.
