Hit-and-run Accident in Cumming Leaves Woman Seriously Injured


Posted on Jun 02, 2013

A hit-and-run accident in Cumming left a woman seriously injured. According to officials, the Georgia car accident took place on Mountain Valley Circle near Highway 20.  

The victim, a female from Forsyth, was seriously injured and sustained a broken arm and head trauma because of the crash. Emergency crews took her to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell for medical treatment.

Forsyth County deputies interviewed the witness who stopped to help the female victim following the accident. The witness told police that a grey car briefly pulled over and stopped but then drove off once the witness stopped to lend a hand to the victim.

Based off this information and the accident evidence recovered at the accident scene, police went into the neighborhoods to speak with residences in the area. During this time, a grey Acura drove by with damage to its hood, said Forsyth County Deputy Courtney Spriggs.

Police officers questioned the driver of the grey car, searched the vehicle, and conducted a brief investigation of the accident scene evidence. Their investigation, and statements made by the driver, led them to believe that the driver of the grey Acura was the hit-and-run driver they were looking for. 

The driver, identified as 86-year-old Winton “Red” Kuglar, turned himself in and was held at Forsyth County Detention Center. He was also charged with hit-and-run resulting in serious injury, serious injury by motor vehicle, and reckless driving.

Unfortunately, the victim remained hospitalized and her name has not been released.

The Law Offices of Shane Smith extend our best wishes for a full and fast recovery to the hit-and-run victim.
