On Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway and Fulton Industrial Blvd. there was a terrible accident Friday morning claiming the life of a 12 year old girl. Police said a pick-up truck turned and while turning hit the side of a car, which caused the car to loss control and spin out. Luckily for other motorists the car spun out into an empty parking lot.
According to Atlanta Police Department, the child of the driver of the car that was hit was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. The 12 year old girl was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
A veteran police officer on the scene spoke about the accident and found it very hard to even talk about. “It is difficult. I mean, I’m getting emotional right now. It is difficult to loss a child of any age,” said Kim Jones with the Atlanta police.
The driver of the pick-up truck will most likely face charges, once the investigation is completed.
