ATLANTA — A local mother says she wants answers from a ride-sharing company after one of its drivers got into a serious wreck, killing a woman and injuring another person.
A Channel 2 Action News reporter and photographer witnessed the crash along Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard and West Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta Sunday night.
Ayanna Robinson said she learned her son was hurt through a Facebook message.
“It stated that Devonte was at Grady Hospital in the trauma unit,” Robinson told Channel 2’s Audrey Washington.
The message came from a Grady Memorial Hospital nurse after her son told the nurse to let his mother know he was in the trauma unit.
“I couldn’t think. I couldn’t breathe," Robinson said.
The mother told Washington that her son took an Uber from his job in Marietta to a location in southeast Atlanta Sunday night. It was a pool ride, so the driver stopped to pick up another passenger.
