Semi truck accident in Atlanta results in death of newlywed wife


A newlywed wife died in a semi truck accident in Atlanta when the 18-wheeler apparently changed lanes and clipped a car driven by the woman on April 24.

The woman who died was identified as Danielle Holly, 21, of Woodstock, Georgia, according to news reports. Some reports are identifying the woman as Danyal Holley. Her husband, whose name was not released, was transported to the Grady Memorial Hospital and treated for his injuries.

Police charged truck driver Jack Parsons with second-degree vehicular homicide and improper lane change.

A police spokeswoman said that the tractor-trailer driver was trying to change lines and did not see the Nissan in the blind spot. The Nissan Sentra was struck by the truck and flipped onto its side.

The accident prompted police to shut down the southbound lanes of Interstate 285 four several hours. According to, the accident occurred on the west side of I-285, just before the MLK Boulevard overpass.

Truck drivers may be negligent if they fail to check mirrors and cause an accident. It's important for drivers to be mindful of other traffic as they make lane changes.

"The death of this young woman is a terrible tragedy.  This wreck should serve as a reminder to all drivers about the importance of checking mirrors and using turn signals when making lane changes. For truck drivers, this is especially crucial due to the size of their rigs. Even a 'minor' error by the driver can have devastating consequences."
