CATOOSA COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -
A distracted driver caused a series of crashes in Catoosa County on Saturday.
Georgia State Patrol said a driver became distracted and side swiped a motor home in another lane near the Ringgold exit.
Authorities said when he got back into his lane, the driver hit a truck.
As a result, the driver of the truck hit another car, which caused that car to hit another vehicle.
GSP said the distracted driver faces several charges including failure to maintain a single lane, driving without a license, following too close, failure to use due care while driving, and driving too fast for conditions.
Three people were taken to Erlanger and another was taken to Hamilton Medical Center.
