UPDATED by Charlie: The AJC is reporting that the teen driver of the other car has died. Our prayers go out to his family and friends.
Say a prayer for former Governor Barnes’ daughter and grandchildren. They were hit buy a teen driver speeding in a Porsche.
Barnes’ daughter, Allison Barnes Salter, of Marietta, was driving the Odyssey northbound on Old Mountain Road, near Greymont Circle, police said.
The Porsche crossed into the northbound lanes while attempting to negotiate a curve to the right, Hernandez said. The posted speed limit on the road is 30 mph, but investigators believe Zuniga was traveling faster.
Zuniga, of Kennesaw, had to be extricated from the vehicle before being transported to Atlanta Medical Center, Hernandez said. A 16-year-old passenger, whose name was not released, was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, he said.
Salter, 35, was also taken to Kennestone and two daughters, ages 7 and 4, were transported to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, police said. None of their injuries were believed to be life-threatening. Salter was released from the hospital Sunday evening and the girls were expected to stay overnight.
