Road conditions can become a factor in an accident for even the most experienced of drivers. Whether the road is wet, icy, or it is simply dark and without light, unfavorable conditions can lead to an accident. The Atlanta Journal and Constitution reports on a 4-car-accident that claimed the life of a mother and her child.
Cobb County Police believe that wet road conditions played a part in a multi-vehicle accident that claimed the lives of a mother and a one-year-old boy.
Last Tuesday, Odyssey Abdur-Raheen, 32, of Gainesville, was driving a Nissan Altima was traveling west on Windy Hill Road when she lost control of the vehicle, crossing the center line and into the eastbound lanes.
The vehicle was first struck by a Ford F-150 truck on the passenger side, and then the Ford was then struck by a Dodge Durango. The Dodge then rolled backwards and struck a Hyundai Genesis.
There were passengers in the Nissan Altima: a 1-year-old boy and a seven-year-old girl as well as a nine-year-old girl. The seven-year-old and the nine-year-old were both taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite.
Abudi-Raheem and the one-year-old boy were both pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Ford did not require medical attention, but his passenger was taken to Wellstar Kennestone with minor injuries. A 10-year-old boy in the back of the pickup escaped injury as well.
No charges are expected to be filed.
