Atlanta High School Student and Young Brother Killed in Morning Car Crash

Earlier this month, two brothers were killed in an early-morning crash in Georgia. According to an Atlanta news report, a 17-year-old high school student and his younger brother were killed in a car accident on their way to school. Evidently, the 17-year-old was driving down Highway 216 at around 7 a.m. with his 15-year-old brother when the crash occurred. A preliminary investigation revealed that the older brother was driving a 1992 Accord when he attempted to turn left at an intersection. Evidently, a PT Cruiser was proceeding westbound, and the two vehicles collided.

Apparently, the older brother received his license a year prior and had been using the same route to school ever since. The older brother was sadly pronounced dead right after the accident. However, the younger brother was in the hospital with life-threatening injuries and passed away following surgery. The investigation is still ongoing to determine how fault should be apportioned among the parties.
