A Georgia woman has been pronounced brain dead after someone shot her in the neck Wednesday morning while she drove in Clayton County, causing a three-car crash.
Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 28-year-old Kelsey Quayle was driving her Mazda 626 down Upper Riverdale Road at around 7:30 a.m. when she crashed into oncoming traffic, apparently losing control of her car after someone shot her in the neck. Three other drivers crashed after Quayle’s car moved into oncoming traffic. While the other drivers sustained minor injuries, Quayle was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, where she was pronounced brain dead.
According to Clayton County police Capt. Scott Stubbs, first responders noticed Quayle had been shot in the neck while transporting her to the hospital, although authorities didn’t receive any calls about gunshots being fired in the area. Investigators are currently reviewing surveillance footage in the area to determine what happened.
Quayle moved to the Atlanta area two months prior, with aspirations of finding more modeling opportunities.
Doctors at Grady Medical Center told FOX5 that the bullet entered through Quayle’s neck and severed her spinal cord. Her sister, Kayleigh Martin, is pleading for answers and isn’t sure why anyone would intentionally want to shoot Quayle.
“We just have so many unanswered questions. I just want to know who did this. She didn’t deserve this.”
