SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, GA (2/27/2020) — Three people involved in a fatal accident were identified on Friday by Union City police. The single-car crash happened Thursday morning around 4:00 a.m.
According to Georgia State Patrol, a 2015 Kia Optima was driving east on South Fulton Parkway when it crossed the median of the road and hit several trees. After the impact of the crash, the Kia rotated, and the vehicle was split in half.
