A pair of Tuesday evening traffic accidents left four people dead in the area.

In Hamilton County, two people died in a single-car crash on Champion Road near Booker T. Washington State Park in the Harrison area.

That crash happened just before 9 p.m. The sheriff's office's traffic division is investigating, but the cause of the wreck has not been determined. Authorities are not releasing the identities of the victims until family members are notified.

Less than two hours before, 27-year-old Katrina White veered into oncoming traffic while driving a Ford Focus on Highway 225 in Murray County, Ga.

The car collided with a Ford F-350 pickup truck. Both White and her passenger, 44-year-old Rodney Parker, died. White and Parker were Calhoun-area residents, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

A man driving the truck suffered minor injuries.
