Atlanta police are investigating a car crash between two parents that killed their infant girl, authorities said.
About 7 p.m. Monday, officers responded to a two-vehicle crash on Chappell Road near Eason Street in northwest Atlanta, police said. When officers arrived, the infant and the child’s father were both injured inside one of the cars.
They were taken to a hospital, where the girl died, police said. Channel 2 Action News reported that she was 3 months old.
The child’s father was also taken to a hospital, where he is stable.
Investigators believe the father had placed the infant in his vehicle and was beginning to drive away when the child’s mother intentionally struck his vehicle with hers, police said. The woman has been detained by police.
Atlanta police say a mother intentionally slammed into the car of her child’s father.
The crash left the father injured and their baby girl, dead.
