Two drivers died 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 said 24-year-old Zoe Robinson entered the southbound lanes from Abernathy Road and drove the wrong way when she collided with another vehicle driven by 32-year-old Damis Lider.

“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.”

The impact of the crash caused both vehicles to spin 180 degrees, which initially made it appear as though Robinson had been traveling in the correct direction. But investigators used cellphone location data and traffic cameras to determine that Robinson had been on Abernathy Road about three to five minutes before the crash and entered the highway on the wrong side.

All southbound lanes were closed for at least four hours while Sandy Springs and Roswell police investigated.
