GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. —

A medical examiner has identified a mother killed in a hit-and-run Monday on I-85 at Steve Reynolds Boulevard in Gwinnett County.

The victim is Rabia Adan, of Duluth. The 34-year-old was not wearing a seatbelt, authorities told Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh. Adan's husband and two children were injured in the wreck, but they will be OK.

Police told Kavanaugh the SUV carrying the family was traveling southbound on I-85. Police said a semitruck changing lanes clipped the front of the SUV, which sent the SUV spinning into another large truck. The SUV catapulted over an embankment at least 20 feet, clearing a guardrail and landing on an offramp.

Police spoke with the semitruck driver, who they said went to make a delivery in Cobb County after the crash.

It's possible that the semitruck driver didn't know he hit the SUV, police said Monday. There are no charges pending at this time.

The ramp from Steve Reynolds Boulevard to I-85 southbound was shut down while police investigated the crash.
