Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
CONYERS, Ga. (AP) — A baby and a teenage passenger were killed when the child’s mother was racing another car and crashed on Interstate 20 east of Atlanta early Friday, the Georgia State Patrol said.
Kyrie Alassen Anderson, 22, was racing her Honda Accord near Conyers, about 25 miles east of Atlanta, and lost control of the car. The car hit a guardrail and traveled back across the westbound lanes of the highway before being hit by a Chevrolet pickup truck.
Officials say the woman’s 7-month-old baby and her 19-year-old boyfriend, Edi Rodriguez, of Covington, died in the crash.
The driver the woman was racing with has been identified and will be interviewed, Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright, said. Anderson was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and the passengers in the pickup truck that hit Anderson’s car were also injured.
Authorities did not immediately say if Anderson or anyone else faces charges.
The fatal crash caused another accident nearby when a driver who tried slowing down was rear-ended.
