BARTOW CO., GA – Three adults and a teenager died Sunday in a wrong-way collision involving five vehicles along the interstate in northwestern Georgia.

The incident occurred around 6 p.m. on the southbound side of I-75 in Bartow County.

Three people in the Kia van and the driver of the 4Runner died at the scene of the accident. Authorities identified the victims as 43-year-old Dakarai Mason, 35-year-old Erin Mason, 14-year-old Brandon Crawford, and 21-year-old Aimee Odom.
