Atlanta crash kills newlywed

ATLANTA — A newlywed is dead and her husband was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital after a tractor-trailer changing lanes hit their car on Interstate 285 in Atlanta.


Police say the truck knocked 21-year-old Danielle Holly's Nissan Sentra out of control. It was hit by another semi and flipped, landing on its side.

The wreck Sunday night closed all southbound lanes of I-285 near MLK Drive.

Officer Kim Jones with Atlanta police told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that the tractor-trailer's driver, Jack Parsons, was attempting to change lanes.

Parsons was arrested and charged with second degree vehicular homicide and improper lane change.

Holly's husband, whose name was not released, was a passenger in the Nissan. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
