• A head-on collision in Georgia's Interstate 95 killed all six people involved in the crash, including three children
  • Five of the victims have been identified as a family from Virginia
  • The accident took place just a day after another crash involving three vehicles took place at the Interstate 75

A 77-year-old man driving in the wrong direction on Georgia’s Interstate 95 killed himself and five other people during a fatal collision early Sunday. Three of the dead were children, authorities revealed.

According to FOX News, the driver of a Lexus RX350 was driving in the wrong direction on the interstate when it crashed onto a Nissan Rogue. The Rogue had a female driver, an adult passenger, and three children, believed to be between ages 4 and 14, all of whom died in the collision.

All northbound lanes on the Georgia interstate were shut down for around three hours since the crash took place at around 2:05 a.m.

Georgia State Patrol said the driver of the Lexus RX350 is believed to have been in good health and was not impaired during the crash. His identity will be revealed once the family is informed of the accident.

The female driver has been identified as Sara Robinson. On the passenger seat was her husband, Nathan Robinson, and the children in the car were identified as Stephen, Rebecca, and Alexander, USA Today reported. The family of five is from Portsmouth, Virginia, authorities confirmed.

Photos from the site showed both the vehicles crumpled due to the impact from the head-on collision. Broken car parts and clothing were scattered around the crash site.

One of the images indicated that the Nissan Rouge sufferd significantly more damage than the Lexus. The anterior part of the Rouge was completely crushed.

According to NBC affiliate WSAV-TV, Liberty County Sheriff’s Deputy Lt. Jason Colvin revealed that before the crash took place, the Liberty County 911 received a “lookout advisory” notification regarding a white Lexus on the interstate.

Deputies then proceeded to the area but before they arrived, they received a call about a collision at exit 76 in Midway. Upon arrival, the deputies found the two vehicles with no survivors.

A day earlier, a GSP officer had tried to stop 20-year-old Christopher Tyler Parker as he was driving on Interstate 75 in Gordon County for over-speeding on a stolen 2015 Mini Cooper, FOX 5 reported.

Parker refused to stop, prompting the troopers chase Parker’s vehicle, which then collided with Angela Walker Townsend’s Buick Verano. The impact was so strong that the Buick was pushed aside and hit a Dodge Durango driven by Vanessa Stovall.

Stovall was taken to the hospital for treatment to her injuries and Parker was taken into custody; but Townsend was killed in the crash.
