CONYERS, Ga. (AP) — A baby and a teenage passenger were killed when the child’s mother was racing another car and crashed on Interstate 20 east of Atlanta early Friday, the Georgia State Patrol said.
Kyrie Alassen Anderson, 22, was racing her Honda Accord near Conyers, about 25 miles east of Atlanta, and lost control of the car. The car hit a guardrail and traveled back across the westbound lanes of the highway before being hit by a Chevrolet pickup truck.
Officials say the woman’s 7-month-old baby and her 19-year-old boyfriend, Edi Rodriguez, of Covington, died in the crash.
