Two drivers are dead following a head-on collision Sunday morning on Ga. 400 in Sandy Springs, police said.

Officers received multiple calls about a wrong-way driver in the southbound lanes beginning about 5:30 a.m. and were on their way there when the driver crashed into another vehicle south of the Chattahoochee River, just past the Roberts Drive overpass, according to Sandy Springs police.

Investigators have determined that 32-year-old Damis Lider of Clarkston entered the southbound lanes from Abernathy Road and drove a blue 2015 Hyundai Sonata the wrong way. He then struck a blue 2016 Sonata driven by 24-year-old Zoe Robinson of Sandy Springs.

“As a result of the head-on collision, both drivers received fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene,” the department said in the post. “The two drivers were the sole occupants of their respective vehicles.”

All southbound lanes were closed for at least four hours while Sandy Springs and Roswell police investigated, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Sandy Springs police are asking anyone with information to contact Officer Gilmore at SGilmore@SandySpringsGa.Gov.
