The Cartersville Police Department has expressed its deepest condolences to the family of Officer Sarah Beth Barnes, aged 32, who passed away in Dallas, Georgia, as a result of a tragic, off-duty motor vehicle crash, which occurred just before 5:30pm on January 30th, 2020.
The 2011 Kia Sorrento driven by Sarah Barnes was traveling east on GA Highway 6, in Paulding County, in the left lane. The vehicle traveled into the north median and over corrected, returning back into the eastbound lanes of the roadway. The vehicle over corrected again and traveled across the median and into the westbound lanes of the roadway striking two additional cars.
The two other two drivers involved in the crash were treated for non life-threatening injuries.
Sarah Beth Barnes leaves behind a husband and five children.
