Police expect to file charges against the driver who caused a three car wreck that killed a Paulding County woman and left her son critically injured.
Sixty-seven-year-old Jeffrey L. House of Powder Springs was driving a 1988 Jeep Comanche on Midway Road near Powder Springs on Friday, May 7. It was about 3 p.m. when he made a left turn onto Lost Mountain Road and pulled into the path of a 2004 Chevrolet Blazer. The Blazer was knocked into the path of a Honda Odyssey. That impact caused the Blazer to overturn.
The driver of the Blazer, 47-year-old Pennie Ann Cearfoss died at the scene. She had three passengers in her vehicle. Seventeen-year-old Joshua Cearfoss was flown to Atlanta Medical Center where he is listed as being in critical condition. His twin, Justin Cearfoss and another brother, Jeffrey Cearfoss, 25, were taken by ambulance to Atlanta Medical for treatment of their injuries. Neither 17-year-old was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
The driver of the Honda, 61-year-old Anabelle Cordova of Powder Springs, was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital for treatment of her injuries. Two minor children in her vehicle were uninjured.
House was not injured. The accident is under investigation. It is unknown if alcohol is a factor.
