The accident happened around 1 p.m. Wednesday.
A white Saturn crashed into and slid under a Dodge Stratus in an accident on N. Hairston Road near Memorial Drive Wednesday early afternoon. Amazingly, no one was hurt in the bizarre-looking wreck that even stunned firefighters. H. Trotty said he's seen a lot of different types of accidents in his nearly 16 years with DeKalb County fire department, including cars that have gone under big trucks, but for a car "to go under the same size car? That's a first," he said. The driver of the Stratus, Carmen Staley, said she was behind another car that was waiting to make a turn when the Saturn crashed into her car. She said the Saturn driver told her his brakes gave out. "He came and helped me out," Staley said. Check back with Patch for updates.
