The two people killed in Interstate 59 crash have been ID'd

The two people killed Saturday on Interstate 59 near Trenton, Ga., have been identified as Michelle R. Fletes, 27, and Raul Alberto Fletes, 28, of Rossville.

The couple’s 3-year-old daughter should be released from the hospital to family members soon, said Cpl. Andrew Gideon of the Georgia State Patrol.

Authorities said Michelle Fletes was driving a 2010 Dodge Charger north on I-59 around 2 p.m. Saturday. A witness told WRCB-TV 3 the Dodge hit the back of a tractor-trailer.

Authorities are investigating the incident, though they do not believe at this time that drugs or alcohol were involved, Gideon said.
