Teacher dies in crash with students on way to prom

It was not the happy ending to a would-be wonderful night that many were anticipating. Sadly, a Georgia teacher and her daughter were involved in a car accident when their vehicle collided with another. In addition, 33-year-old, Leah O'Brien was killed in the accident, and her 8-year-old daughter was injured and in stable condition at this time. The people in the other vehicle that were involved in the accident were two teenagers on the way to their high school prom. Luckily, both teens that were hurt in the crash only suffered minor injuries and are expected to survive.

Ironically, O'Brien was a teacher at Lakeside High where the students were on their way to the prom. O'Brien and the other vehicle collided as she was waiting to turn into Scott Boulevard Saturday that evening. O'Brien's death has shocked and saddened the school. Likewise, O'Brien was a science teacher, and also one of the dance team sponsors. In addition, O'Brien was part of the teacher development program, which helped students interested in becoming teachers. Currently, the accident is under investigation.
