Teen Texting May Be to Blame for Fatal Georgia Crash

On Friday, May 27, 2011, a deadly Georgia car crash took place in Coweta County that possibly involved a texting teenage driver. Sadly, two died in this two-car crash that occurred late at night.

Taylor Brooke McKee, the 16-year-old driver of a 2003 Chevrolet Tracker, ran a red light and crashed into a 1993 Honda Civic around midnight. According to her sister, McKee, of Roopville, was possibly texting while behind the wheel.

Linda Devora Leflore, 29, was driving the Honda Civic. She had just exited I-85 and turned onto Bullsboro Drive when she was hit by the Chevrolet Tracker.

According to Georgia State Patrol Lt. Paul Cosper, both drivers, McKee and Leflore, were killed in this tragic crash.

Amber Harrison, 16, and 15-year-old Elyssa Jordan were passengers in McKee's car. They were injured and taken to area hospitals for medical treatment.

Police said that no one was wearing a seatbelt in either of the cars. They do not believe that alcohol played a factor in the crash, but blood tests are being taken to confirm. Although the Georgia crash is still under investigation, police are looking into the possibility that McKee was texting moments before the accident. The young driver had gotten her license six months prior to this fatal crash.

Kalka & Baer would like to extend our condolences to the families and friends of Linda Leflore and Taylor McKee.
