It can happen to anyone. People get confused and drive the wrong way on a roadway, causing an accident. While some may be able to avoid the wrong-way driver, others are not so lucky.
A wrong-way driver caused an accident that led to the death of a College Park woman and her daughter. The accident occurred on I-75 in middle Georgia.
Monserrat Godinez, 29, of College Park, Georgia, lost her life in the crash that occurred on I-75 southbound at about 2 a.m. on Sunday morning. Godinez’s 7-year old daughter was taken to a Macon hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
32-year-old David Fryar, of Forsyth, was the driver of the wrong-way car. He was also killed in the accident.
In the moments before the accident, sheriff department officials had received reports of the wrong way driver. They were unable to get to the vehicle before the accident.
A witness to the wrong-way driving, David McCoy, said that at first he thought it was construction. His wife said it was a wrong-way driver and he was able to swerve to avoid a collision. McCoy and his family were on the way home to Florida following a comic convention in Atlanta.
McCoy said, “He whizzed by.” Continuing, McCoy stated, “He was flying.”
