Update: In it's final report, Georgia State Patrol investigators reversed their initial findings and said street racing was not involved in the wreck and Kyrie Anderson was not driving the Honda Accord. Here's the updated story -

Original Story: Two people were killed, including a teenager and infant, and three others injured in a wreck on I-20 in Rockdale County that police believe was caused by illegal street racing.

Madison resident Kyrie Alassen Anderson, 22, was allegedly racing another vehicle on the interstate, traveling westbound, when she lost control of her Honda Accord, crashed into the guardrail and then traveled across the westbound lanes.

The Honda was then hit by a third vehicle, a Chevrolet Silverado, injuring Anderson and killing her two passengers, an unidentified infant and 19-year-old Edi Rodriquez of Covington. Other media are reporting that the infant was Anderson's 7-month-old son.

The driver of the Silverado, 34-year-old Jody Shane Richardson of Bowdon, and passenger, 48-year-old Terry Lee Chaney of Carrollton, were both injured.

"The other driver believed to be involved with racing the Honda has been identified and will be interviewed during the follow up investigation," a Georgia State Patrol spokesperson said Friday afternoon. "It is still very early in the investigation and any charges will be considered once all of the facts have been collected."

The crash also caused another accident when a vehicle slowed down to avoid the wreck and was rear-ended.
