Authorities have identified the three people killed Friday evening when a Chevrolet Corvette crossed into oncoming traffic and struck two vehicles head on in Forest Park.

The wreck occurred about 7 p.m. on Forest Parkway, killing the driver of the Corvette and two people inside a Ford Fiesta, according to the Georgia State Patrol. A 13-month-old inside the Fiesta survived the crash and is expected to be OK, authorities said.

According to the preliminary investigation, 54-year-old Jesse Williams was driving eastbound on Forest Parkway when he crossed the median into the oncoming lane, striking the Fiesta and then a Ford Expedition heading in the opposite direction.

Williams was thrown from the vehicle and pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital.
