Dougherty County --  Wet weather and driving to fast  were blamed for  two separate car crashes Friday on U.S. 19 in South Dougherty County.

Dougherty County Police say about 9:00 AM on US 19 at McKenzie Road, a Ford Taurus driven by Eric Gammage of Pelham hit a puddle, and went out of control.  The Taurus struck a Toyota Camry driven by Gerald Glascow, causing both cars to crash.   The Toyota ending up on its side.  No one was injured.    

Gammage was charged with too fast for conditions and failure to maintain lane.  

Just about the same time a few miles north on U.S. 19, Police say Anna Juan of Albany was driving too fast on the rain slick highway. She hydroplaned, crossed the highway, and struck a church sign.  She wasn't hurt.   Juan was charged with driving too fast for conditions, and driving without a license.

In another Accident a little before 4:00, a Ford Expedition hit a Jeep Grand Cherokee near the 900 block of South Madison Street, causing the Jeep to overturn.   Both vehicles were traveling south on the one way street.

There were minor injuries, but police tell us the driver of the Jeep was arrested.
