Wrong Way Crash on GA-400 N Kills Two
Two people were tragically killed last Wednesday when a motorist drove the wrong way on GA-400. The collision occurred at 4:30 am, and according to Atlanta Police, alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
24-year-old Frampere Ingle of Cobb County was driving southbound in the northbound lanes of GA-400, just before the Atlanta Financial Center Tunnel, when she struck another vehicle head on. Eric Hanks, 44, who had been driving the correct way on the highway when his vehicle collided with Ms. Ingle’s, died at the scene. Ms. Ingle was taken to Grady Memorial
Hospital after the crash, where she later died from her injuries.
There was a passenger in Ms. Ingles’ vehicle who sustained serious injuries. According to the police, Ms. Ingle and her passenger were not wearing seatbelts. Officer Kim Jones told local news outlets that Ms. Ingle may have been drinking.
This is such tragic and terrible news. When I hear about drivers going the wrong way down the highway in the middle of the night, I frequently wonder if they were driving drunk, and according to police, this may have been the case in this incident. Drunk driving often results in accidents that cause serious injuries or even death to all parties involved.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who passed away in this terrible accident.
