DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — An early-morning wreck on I-285 in DeKalb County involved an ambulance rushing an infant to the hospital, police said, and the infant passed away at the hospital.
According to the Dunwoody Police Department, hospital staff said the death "was likely not related to the crash."
It's not clear if the infant could have been saved if the child had gotten to the hospital sooner.
An initial two-vehicle wreck occurred at the top end of the Perimeter Monday morning on I-285 WB, at Chamblee Dunwoody Road east of GA-400.
There were two subsequent crashes that occurred as a result of the first crash, police said.
The ambulance, a Gwinnett County vehicle, was involved in one of the secondary crashes. It was no longer operable after the crash, and emergency responders had to take the infant to the hospital from there.
Three other adults were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
The driver determined to be at fault in the initial crash has been charged with driving without a license and failure to maintain lane.
