GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- Two people were killed when a car collided with a tractor trailer in Gwinnett County Wednesday night.

The accident happened at around 10:45 p.m. on Satellite Boulevard at Shawnee Industrial Way.

Gwinnett County Police Sgt. Brian Doan said a PT Cruiser turned onto Satellite Boulevard when it was hit by a tractor trailer.

The tractor trailer then drove off the road and into the wood line, where it leaked fuel.

The driver of the PT Cruiser, 20-year-old Ethan Ashline, was killed, as was the front seat passenger, 25-year-old Adrianna Romero. The back seat passenger, 31-year-old Justin Kyall, was seriously injured and taken to a local hospital.

The tractor trailer driver, 50-year-old Eddie Scott, was not injured.

So far, police do not think alcohol or speed were factors in the wreck and have not charged anyone, Doan said. It is still under investigation.
