A 77-year-old man driving the wrong way on Georgia’s interstate 95 caused a fatal collision that caused his death and the death of five others.
On Sunday, a Lexus RX350 was seen driving the wrong way shortly before it crashed into a Nissan Rogue. The Nisson was carrying two adult passengers and three children between the ages of 4 and 14, all of whom were pronounced dead.
The family, from Portsmouth, Virginia, was identified as Sarah and Nathan Robinson, along with their three children Stephen, Rebecca, and Alexander.
Photos of the crash show the family’s Nissan completely crumpled.

The driver who caused the collision was not impaired and appeared to be in good health.
