She over corrected again traveling back off the north shoulder of the roadway and over corrected a third time and traveled back onto the roadway, rotating counterclockwise. The vehicle crossed the center line into the eastbound lane into the eastbound path of a 2015 Nissan NV200 driven by Charles William Crowder of Swainsboro. Crowder’s vehicle struck the right side of Ms. Herrington’s vehicle.
