Channel 46 CBS News updated the public on a recent hit-and-run crash in Midtown Atlanta that killed an infant child and a teenager in the midtown area of Atlanta, Georgia in late September. On Friday, October 23, a 28-year-old Marietta man was arrested on unrelated charges related to stolen credit cards, but in the course of the arrest, police discovered that he was allegedly the culprit they’d been searching for in the deadly wreck three weeks prior.
The original incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. near the intersection of Techwood Drive and 10th Street in midtown, according to the Georgia State Patrol, when a trooper began pursuit of two vehicles moving at high speed on I-75 southbound near Howell Mill Road. He caught up to one vehicle, a black BMW coupe moving in excess of 120 MPH. The driver attempted to evade by exiting at 17th Street, and eventually crashed into three vehicles, including a Nissan Altima sedan at the intersection with 10th Street. The driver fled the scene on foot.
An 18-year-old teenage boy and 3-month old infant, both in the Altima, were killed by the impact.
