Last night about 3 a.m. westbound on I-285 a vehicle traveling in excess of 100 mph rear ended a tractor trailer in Clayton County leaving the driver and passenger of the vehicle dead at the scene. According to witnesses, the driver of the Volkswagen Jetta made no effort to stop prior to striking the tractor trailer’s rear tires and eventually struck the median ejecting both occupants. Authorities suspect alcohol to be a contributing factor in the auto accident as a strong odor was emitting from the vehicle upon investigation. The driver of the tractor trailer sustained only minor injuries.
