Woman crashes car, shoots and kills man on busy highway, police say

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A crash on a busy metro Atlanta interstate led to rush hour violence that turned deadly.

Channel 2's Alyssa Hyman arrived to the scene Tuesday night and found a pickup truck and Jeep that crashed on Riverdale Road near the I-285 Exit in Clayton County on Tuesday night.

A witness said the woman driving the Jeep confronted the pickup driver after the crash around 6:15 p.m., during the evening rush.

"She jumped out (of) the vehicle and (was) punching him, telling him, 'Get out of the car. Get out of the car. Get out of the car,'" the witness said.


Police confirmed the woman, identified as 21-year-old Hanna Payne, shot and killed the male driver.

The witness also noticed the woman did a quick clothing change.

"She had a bad girl vest on, but after she shot him, she ran in the car, changed clothes, she put a pink little sweater on," the witness said.

Officials said it was not a case of road rage and that they will release more information Wednesday.
