Two people perished and one was critically injured in an early morning crash on Wednesday on GA 400. The 911 calls from the incident had been released.
According to Atlanta Police, a wrong way driver had struck another vehicle while travelling on GA 400 just south of Lenox Road.
In a preliminary investigation findings, 24-year-old Frampere Ingle had entered the highway from Lenox Road and drove south in a northbound road.
This resulted in a head-on collision between Ingle and a vehicle driven by Eric Hanks.
Hanks died on the spot while Ingle was brought to Grady Memorial Hospital wherein she eventually succumbed from her injuries.
Beyonica Watts, a passenger of Ingle, is reported in critical condition and has sustained severe injuries. According to the police, both women were found out to be not wearing night seatbelts.
Officer Kim Jones said that he had no idea what lane Hanks was traveling in or whether Hanks had seen Ingle at the last minute that it was impossible to get out of the way or maybe both drivers had swerved at the same time.
According to the police, Lenox Road on and off ramps are visibly marked and now they are investigating whether a factor in the crash was alcohol intoxication.
Officer Jones said that the marks were not at all confusing unless you are intoxicated then it would be confusing. He said that there are signs posted on every exit that would indicate whether you are travelling in the wrong way.
GA 400 was temporarily closed to give way for the investigation conducted by the police.
