Gwinnett County Police Department Press Release:
A 21- year old Lawrenceville man died in a Sunday evening crash in unincorporated Lawrenceville.
Shortly after 7:30pm on Sunday, May 3, officers assigned to the Central and South Precincts were dispatched to an injury crash at the intersection of Lawrenceville Highway and Church Road. One of the vehicles was found in the roadway, and the other vehicle was found up against a tree in the wood line.
According to the preliminary investigation, Josue Hernandez-Cano (age 21, Lawrenceville) was traveling north on Lawrenceville Highway towards the city of Lawrenceville in a grey Infiniti G37. Alvero Gonzalez (age 20, Lawrenceville) was attempting to turn left from James Road onto Lawrenceville Highway northbound in a white Acura TSX. He had one passenger in the vehicle with him.
As the vehicles approached each other, Gonzalez swerved to the left while Hernandez-Cano swerved to the right. Both vehicles eventually collided. The white Acura came to a rest in the roadway, while the grey Infiniti continued off the roadway and eventually struck a tree head-on at the intersection of Church Road. Josue Hernandez-Cano later died as a result of his injuries in the collision. Neither Gonzalez nor his passenger had any significant injuries.
The specifics of this collision are still being investigated, and no charges have been filed as of yet.
