Lambert student killed in car crash

Driver of other vehicle suspected of drinking



DAWSONVILLE, Ga. — A 15-year-old Lambert student was killed around 9:30 p.m. July 4 after being involved in a car crash near the North Georgia Premium Outlets.

Rising junior Eliza Farrell, 15, of Suwanee, died after the 2006 Acura she was a passenger in was struck on the side by a 2011 Dodge Ram truck along Industrial Park Road in Dawson County. The driver of the Dodge, Brayden Clark, 21 of Loganville, allegedly didn’t halt at a stop sign at the intersection.

Both drivers and a female passenger in the Acura were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. A male passenger in the Acura was also taken to the hospital, but his condition is unknown.

The investigation is ongoing, but state troopers say they are investigating to see if Clark may have been under the influence of alcohol.
