COVINGTON, Ga. — Georgia State Patrol officials say two people were killed and three others were injured in a crash in Newton County.

Authorities say the crash happened early Sunday morning on Interstate 20.

Officials say a 2013 Chevrolet Sonic ran out of gas and was stopped in the shoulder. The driver of a Toyota Camry stopped to help the driver of the Chevrolet.

Authorities say a 2004 Jeep Patriot being driven by a 28-year-old Conyers man rear-ended the Toyota and sideswiped the Chevrolet.

State patrol officials say a pedestrian between the two stopped cars was killed, and a passenger in the Toyota also died in the crash.

Authorities say they suspect alcohol as a factor in the crash and that charges will likely be filed against the driver of the Jeep.

2 dead, 3 injured, another life ruined while DUI

When will people learn not to drive after drinking? 2 more killed, 3 injured and the life of the driver ruined all because of driving after drinking. Law Enforcement needs to do whatever it takes to keep these people off of our roadways and stricter punishments need to be issued to irresponsible DUI drivers.

I wager $10 to $1 the driver

I wager $10 to $1 the driver was sloshed at or above a .15 BAC. There is where the hammer needs to fall, not on the .08 snagged at a checkpoint.
