Marietta police ID woman who died after I-75 wreck

Marietta police Monday released the name of a woman killed in a Sunday night wreck on I-75.

The wreck happened about 7:40 p.m. on I-75 southbound just past Delk Road.

According to Marietta police spokesman David Auld, a Honda Accord driven by 25-year-old Richeany Meas of Acworth blew a front tire and came to a stop in the number two travel lane.

A Jeep Wrangler struck the Honda in the rear, and both the Honda and Jeep came to rest against the left median wall, with the Jeep on its roof.

After the wreck, Meas got out of the Honda to check on a child in the back seat, but collapsed, police said.

Auld said Meas was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, and was pronounced dead of injuries sustained in the crash.

A front seat passenger in the Honda, 27-year-old Enrique Zavaleta of Acworth, and a four-year-old boy in the Honda, also of Acworth, were treated at Wellstar Kennestone and later released.

The Jeep driver, 39-year-old Thomas Allan Jordan of Taylorsville, was taken to Wellstar Kennestone, and was in serious but stable condition Monday.

All southbound lanes of the interstate were closed for about 30 minutes, and the four left lanes remained shut down for several hours while police investigated the accident. No charges are expected, Auld said.
