James Alex Turner of Rome was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to the Georgia State Patrol (GSP).
He was traveling south near Lewis Road when a Chevrolet Astro van, driven by Francisco Gomez Sales, of Cedartown, traveled into the southbound lane going north, police said.
There weren’t any other people in either of the vehicles, Chaffin said.
Sales was taken to the Polk County Jail on charges of DUI, driving on the wrong side of the road, serious injury by vehicle, driving without a license and reckless driving.
Sales remains in the Polk County Jail.
