Witnesses saw that the vehicle hit a guard rail and was launched into a support pillar for an overhead sign. The SUV burst into flame. The driver and passenger were pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the tractor trailer involved did not stop.
Investigation is ongoing as Georgia State Patrol officers are searching for a tractor trailer driver.
