SMYRNA, Ga. (WXIA/WTSP) -- A car driving on the wrong side of the road crashed head-on into another vehicle in Georgia, killing a baby and injuring several others, including two more children.

It happened just before 11 p.m. Saturday at Windy Hill Road and South Cobb Drive. Cobb County police say 31-year-old Darren Curry was driving west in an eastbound lane of Windy Hill Road. The 8-month-old, a 3-year-old and a 7-year-old were all in Curry's car at the time, along with another adult and the family dog.

Investigators say Curry crashed head-on into a minivan taxi, killing the infant and severely injuring the 3-year-old with head trauma. The taxi driver was not seriously injured.

All occupants were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital.

Police say none of the children were properly restrained. The pet dog also died in the crash.

Curry faces charges of DUI and vehicular homicide.

The deadly crash comes a week after another deadly wrong-way crash made national headlines, when five people, including four University of South Florida students, were killed in a crash on Interstate 275 in Tampa.
