A toddler injured in a nearly head-on collision that earlier killed his 29-year-old father has died, Gwinnett County police said Thursday.
Cameron Lowe, 11 months, died Sunday — 11 days after the Feb. 10 accident left his father Sean Lowe dead and sent a total of four people to hospitals in serious condition, Gwinnett police Cpl. Michele Pihera said.
Police previously said speed and alcohol were factors in the crash, which involved a 2011 Toyota Camry driven by 26-year-old Shana Fischer-Williams and a 2002 Honda Accord driven by 26-year-old Michael Schick. Fischer-Williams is Cameron’s mother.
Cameron was seated behind her when the accident occurred about 10 p.m. on McKendree Church Road near Lawrenceville.
That’s when the northbound Accord skidded into the roadway, crossed into the southbound lane and struck the southbound Camry.
In addition to Cameron, his father also rode in the Camry. Jessica Terracina, 20, was a passenger in the Accord.
Everyone was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville, Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite in Sandy Springs. Schick and Terracina are expected to survive, police said.
Fischer-Williams, who was pinned in the car and suffered broken bones and bruises, underwent her third surgery two days ago, according to a GoFundMe account the family setup to help with medical and funeral expenses.
She can’t walk.
