3 people dead after horrific crash on I-20 in DeKalb

A pickup truck collided with a tractor-trailer on the I-285 exit ramp to I-20 in DeKalb County on Tuesday night, killing a Marvel stuntman and three of his children and leaving another child in critical condition.

Taraja Ramsess, 41, who worked in the film industry on “Avengers: Endgame” and “Black Panther,” died in the crash along with his 13-year-old daughter Sundari and infant daughter Fujibo, according to DeKalb police and a family member.

Two other children, a 10-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl, were taken to a hospital in critical condition. On Sunday, police confirmed that the 10-year-old, Kisasi Ramsess, died from his injuries. The girl’s condition was serious but stable, authorities said.

Police did not report any injuries to the driver of the tractor-trailer.

Officers were called to the crash on the exit ramp to I-20 East just before midnight, police said. The ramp was shut down for more than three hours as the police department’s traffic specialist unit investigated.

According to an initial investigation, Taraja Ramsess was driving a Ford F-150 and was exiting onto Wesley Chapel Road, where a tractor-trailer was broken down in the left lane. He collided with the big rig.

With the ramp shut down, police directed motorists to turn around and drive in the opposite direction to relieve the backup, according to the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center. The exit ramp was reopened just before 3:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said the investigation remains active.
