Doraville, GA (November 8, 2019) – A woman was killed in a fatal accident at a Doraville intersection that also led to the arrest of one man yesterday, November 7.
The accident took place at the intersection of Winters Chapel Road and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Doraville. The woman was driving a Volvo when she was struck by a red pickup truck that was being chased by an SUV.
The driver of the red truck ran a red light and slammed into her vehicle around 12:45 p.m., which caused her to lose her life at the scene of the collision.
The man in the pickup truck ran the red light because he was attempting to evade gunshots from the driver of the SUV. There were a woman and a juvenile in the pickup truck but the woman died before the police arrived. The juvenile was hospitalized with injuries.
The driver of the pickup truck was charged with first-degree vehicular homicide. The driver of the SUV fled the scene before police arrived.
