Georgia State Patrol Officers tell FOX 31 News she was brought back to life on scene by paramedics after police say alcohol may have played a role in the causing off that crash. Around 4:45 p.m. Monday officers say 49-year-old Kerrie Pine was traveling north on Veterans Parkway, going way above the speed limit. They say when she tried to make a right turn into the Walmart parking lot she struck another car driven by 41-year-old Carmen Johnson. That crash caused Pine's car to turn over, ending up on its roof. Pine was immediately sent to Colquitt Regional Medical Center, where she's in critical condition. Officers say Johnson, was up and walking after the crash and is doing fine. They say drivers should always put safety first. "You have to be conscious of other drivers when you're out here on the roadway. Don't drink and drive, think about your life, think about other people's life. In a split second anything can happen, so always think wise and do the right thing," said Trooper First Class Johnny Kirk. At time time, there are no charges. This crash is still under investigation.
