Driver flees after 10-year-old girl, father killed in Atlanta crash

Alcohol suspected to be a factor, according to police report

A driver fled the scene of a single-vehicle crash Saturday morning and remains at large after two passengers were killed, including a 10-year-old girl, and several others were injured, Atlanta police said.

The driver, identified as Zyria Sensley, is suspected of drinking prior to the crash, according to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Officers were called to the intersection of Campbellton and County Line roads about 3 a.m. regarding the crash. Multiple people were found injured and one person was dead at the scene, police said.

The surviving victims were taken to a hospital, where officers said another person died from their injuries. The remaining victims sustained injuries not considered life-threatening.

Janyla Henderson, 10, and Nicholas Jeffries, 33, were killed in the crash, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed.

According to authorities, the driver was traveling westbound on Campbellton and lost control, causing the vehicle to roll over several times, police said.

The incident report said Sensley could be charged with committing traffic offenses, and the responding officers suspected alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Tracey Cartwright told Channel 2 Action News that Jeffries, her nephew, “was a very nice guy” who provided for his family, and that Henderson was his stepdaughter. She said Jeffries’ 16-year-old stepson and the mother of their children, who is friends with Sensley, were also in the car, the news station reported.

“Not only did I lose a nephew, my sister lost a son. He was the father of three children. They don’t have their dad anymore,” she said.
