Toddler dies in front seat after I-75 car accident
PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A car accident in Perry Thursday night killed a two-year-old girl on I-75.

The little girl’s dad was driving a GMC Yukon, traveling northbound on I-75 near mile marker 136. Traffic was slowing down from another accident a couple miles ahead. The Yukon attempted to stop, but the road was wet and slid into a tractor trailer.
Houston County Coroner Danny Galpin says the little girl was pronounced dead just after 1 AM. The father walked away with almost no injuries.
The name of the child has not yet been released.
The Georgia State Patrol’s Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team is investigating the accident.
