Two Drivers killed in Coweta crash

Posted on May 28, 2011

It has been a dangerous Memorial Day weekend in the Atlanta area. Emergency crews have been busy responding to accidents across the state. Late on Friday night, two young drivers were killed in a Coweta County traffic accident.

The side-impact collision occurred just before midnight on May 27, 2011 on Bullsboro Drive at Interstate 85 Exit 47. Sixteen-year-old Taylor McKee, 16, of Roopville, was headed west towards Newnan in a 2003 Cevy Tracker.  She ran a red light and t-boned a 1993 Honda Civic headed east.

The driver of the Civic, 29-year-old Linda Devora Leflore, had just gotten of the interstate and was turning to go east on Georgia 34.  The Chevy crashed into the driver's side. Leflore was pronounced dead at the scene.

McKee and her passengers: Amber Harrison, 16, and Elyssa Jordan 15, were seriously injured. McKee was taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Harrison was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center and is in critical condition. Jordan was taken to Piedmont Medical Hospital.

Blood tests have been conducted on both drivers, but alcohol is not suspected as a cause of the crash.

No one involved in the crash was wearing a seat belt.  Seat belts are the best protection against fatal injury in an Atlanta car crash.
