ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police say a man stole an SUV from a woman on an Atlanta street, then was killed in an accident after he drove the vehicle onto Interstate 20.
Atlanta police spokesman James Polite says the woman was forced out of the SUV late Wednesday night. He says the driver got onto I-20 and headed west, but struck the rear of another vehicle.
Polite says the SUV hit a guard rail and flipped down an embankment, and the driver was ejected and died at the scene. He has not been identified.
Polite says the carjacking victim was not injured, but the driver of the car struck from behind in the accident was hospitalized with injuries.
