• Middle school teacher killed in wreck with tractor trailer


    ATLANTA - One woman is dead and two other people are in critical condition after the car they were in was hit and sent flying into an oncoming tractor-trailer.

    It happened just after 4:30 p.m. on Camp Creek Parkway near Campbellton Road.

    Investigators told Channel 2's Ryan Young the wreck was caused by a teenage girl driving a red Honda losing control of her car. Police said it hit a Saturn and sent that car into oncoming traffic.

    That is when the Saturn was hit by a tractor-trailer.

    The woman who died was 40-year-old Shireen Haynes,  a teacher at Sandtown Middle School. They said a coworker and the coworker's husband were in the car with her at the time of the wreck, and both of them are currently in critical condition at a hospital.

    Police have not released any information on any possible charges at this point.

    Haynes has a teenage son and daughter and recently moved to the Atlanta area from New York.
