UPDATE: Names Released in Fatal Ga. 400 Accident

The accident caused all lanes of Ga. 400 North to be shut down for several hours.

Names released in deadly Ga. 400 accident:

Frampere Ingle, 24, has been identified as the driver that entered Ga. 400 at Lenox Road going southbound in the northbound lanes causing Wednesday's two-fatality accident, according to a report by the AJC.

The northbound driver Ingle collided with has been identified as Eric Hanks. Hanks died at the scene, police said. Ingle, of Marietta, died at Grady Memorial Hospital following the crash.

A passenger in Ingle's vehicle, whose name has not been released, was severely injured and hospitalized in critical condition, according to police.

UPDATE from APD: 

Zone 2 units responded to an accident at Ga. 400 north bound near Lenox Road.

A preliminary investigation showed a driver entering the freeway from Lenox Road traveling south bound in the north bound lanes.  The wrong way driver collided head on with another vehicle that was traveling North on Ga. 400. 

The driver traveling North on Ga. 400 died at the scene.  The driver traveling the wrong way on the freeway was transported to Grady Hospital and later died from their injuries sustained in the accident. 

There was a passenger in the vehicle traveling the wrong way that is listed in critical condition with severe injuries. 

It appears alcohol may have been a factor in this accident. 

The wrong way driver and the passenger in that vehicle were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision.  

At this time, next of kin has not been notified for any victims, therefore, names are not being released, police said.

How DO you spell Lenox Road...?

Is this all people are worried about? I refuse to drive at night with all the crazies driving around. Even worse, 3/4 of the streetlights seem to be out on all local highways, making it impossible to see. I actually drove back to Buckhead after a concert in Peachtree City over the weekend with my brights on all the way because the highway was so dark and dangerous.

Hey Mike that'll get you pulled over for sure. Most drunks drive with their "brights" on unknowing they shouldn't be. I only hope you dimmed them when passing oncoming traffic! Good luck in this Urban jungle!
