The force of the crash was so great that witnesses said one car went airborne and was ripped apart. 

“It was like boom, boom, boom, boom,” one resident described.

Officials said a gold Mercury Marquis was T-boned as it crossed through the intersection.

One witness said it was hit with such force that it flipped over two other cars. The witness said the striking vehicle was barreling down the southbound Fulton lanes.

“He just ran the red lights and he hit the gold car, the one trying to cross Presstman, and then the one crossing Presstman flipped over those two cars, and that’s how it ended up here,” the witness explained. “But the smaller car was running very, very fast coming down Fulton south.”

Police said the man driving the gold sedan was killed, a female passenger was critically injured and a 2-year-old girl was also in the car. She suffered serious head injuries.

Officials said 12 people were injured in the incident. 

It took all of Sunday afternoon to clear the scene. People watching said they could barely believe what they were seeing, especially since the posted speed limit on Fulton Avenue is 30 mph.

“My Lord, I got down here and seen this crash. That one car is totally demolished,” said neighbor Curtis McNair.

Police said two men who were in the striking vehicle, an Acura, were treated at a hospital and released.

No identities have been released yet. The crash is still under investigation.
