CBS Atlanta reported on a fatal traffic collision that took place Sunday night on Six Flags Parkway.
According to reports from investigators, a black Chrisler 200 was traveling eastbound on Six Flags Parkway approaching the intersection with Queensferry Drive, in excess of the posted speed limit of 40 miles per hour. The vehicle’s driver failed to maintain their lane while negotiating a curve in the road and crossed over the westbound lane, off the roadway, and into a tree, causing the vehicle to overturn and land upside down to the north of the road.
The driver, a 21-year-old Jonesboro man, was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while the front seat passenger, a 21-year-old Roswell man, was uninjured but fled on foot, later to be arrested for outstanding warrants.
Three passengers were in the rear seat. One died at the scene of the accident. The other two were transported to WellStar Atlanta Medical Center but succumbed to their injuries. None of these victims have yet been identified.
The collision remains under investigation. Witnesses are asked to contact investigators at 770-499-3987.
