A mother and her baby girl had fled their home in Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma over the weekend, only to lose their lives in a car accident just hours after arriving at their family's home in Georgia.
Kaitlin Hunt, 28, was holding her three-month-old daughter, Riley, in her arms as she attempted to cross the street in Woodstock with a family friend when an SUV driven by a 17-year-old mowed them down.
According to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, the deadly incident took place just after 8pm on Saturday on Arnold Mill Road.
