Authorities say three people, including a mother and her 7-year-old daughter, are dead after a wrong-way driver caused a head-on collision.

Officials with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office say deputies got a call around 2 a.m. Sunday that a car was driving the wrong direction on I-75 south.

Deputies got to the scene near mile marker 195, but say they were unable to reach the vehicle before the accident happened.

Investigators say 32-year-old David Fryar, Jr. was driving his Honda Accord against traffic when he collided head-on with a Nissan Murano, being driven by a 29-year-old College Park woman who was in the car with her daughter.

Authorities say the impact of the collision killed both drivers. The woman's daughter was transported to a Macon hospital, but later died from her injuries.

Officials have not indicated why the Fryar was driving thre wrong way or whether alcohol may have been a factor.
