A dramatic crash near Atlanta left two dead after a man's car launched through the air into oncoming traffic. While the details of the accident are not wholly known, investigators reported that the Florida man veered from the southbound lane of I-75 into the guardrail, which provided the launching power to send him into the air. The car landed on another, and both drivers were killed.
