A car crash has claimed the life of a girl and has left another girl fighting for her life tonight in Atlanta.

The single-vehicle accident happened around 6 tonight at the intersection of Glenwood and Second Avenue.

Atlanta Police told FOX 5 a 53-year-old woman was driving when she lost control in the rain and slammed into a tree.

Police had to call Atlanta Fire to help rescue the woman and the two little girls from the wreckage.

Medics rushed the Children Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, but they say a girl between the ages of 9 and 14 did not survive.

The second girl, who was between the age of 18 months and 2 years old, has serious injuries.

The woman driving the car suffered from broken bones.
