Witnesses blame 'aggressive driving' in infant's death

The accident that killed a Macon infant on Saturday was caused by aggressive driving by her mother and another driver.

That's according to a Macon police incident report.

Two-month-old Karleigh Fountain died after an accident around 5 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of Interstate 75 south, Pio Nono Avenue and Rocky Creek Road.

The report says the child's mother, LaQuesha Johnson, tried to cut off another driver near exit 160A on I-75 south.

Johnson, 21, followed the other driver, Vasquez Fountain, from the Raintree Apartments on the Gray Highway in Macon. Both Johnson and Fountain live in Macon.

Witnesses said both Johnson and Fountain were "driving over aggressive."

The report says Johnson lost control of her car when she tried to cut off Fountain and another driver.

Her car overturned in a ditch off the highway.

So far, no one was been charged in the wreck.
