PTC woman dies after crash on Hwy 54, Huiet Road

A Peachtree City woman died from injuries she received in a motor vehicle crash Friday on the new spur of Huiet Road at Ga. Highway 54 East, sheriff’s officials said today.

Amy Layton, 21, was driving a 1989 Toyota MR2 north on Huiet Road

when she attempted to cross the eastbound lanes of Hwy. 54 around 3:54 p.m., officials said. As she did so, her vehicle was struck on the driver’s side by a 1995 Oldsmobile Alero traveling eastbound, causing Layton’s car to spin into the westbound lanes of Hwy. 54, officials said.

Layton suffered serious injuries and was transported via air ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center, where she later died from her injuries, officials said.

The Alero, driven by Mansur Mujahid of Sharpsburg, was traveling in the left eastbound lane of Hwy. 54 when the collision occurred, officials said. The crash also involved a third vehicle that had to take evasive maneuvers, leave its travel lane and strike a construction barrel.

Deputies are not expecting to file any charges related to the crash.

The intersection, which is part of the West Fayetteville Bypass, is under construction and it could be several months before the necessary traffic light is installed because the mast arms for the signals remain to be manufactured.
