Houston County wreck on I-75 north leaves mom, son dead

The accident happened over the weekend on I-75 north.

HOUSTON COUNTY, Ga. — A mother and her young son are dead after an accident over the weekend in Houston County.

Houston County Deputy Coroner David Gabbard says it happened around 3:30 a.m. Sunday on I-75 north near mile marker 125.

He says law enforcement on scene told him the accident involved a tractor trailer and a van carrying a mom and two of her sons.

Georgia State Patrol says a tractor trailer and a Toyota van collided with each other in the right lane. Their investigation shows the van was at a stop or nearly stopped in the lane. 

That's when the van was hit in the back by the semi-truck, GSP says. 

The mother, 29-year-old Alisha Young, and one of the boys, 4-year-old Malakai, passed away, according to Gabbard. 

He says the other boy, Kayden, was taken to the Medical Center, Navicent Health in Macon, and he does not know his exact condition. 

Gabbard says they were from Snellville, Georgia and in the process of moving to Orlando, Florida. 

This is a developing story and will be updated as more details become available.
