Fulton County police took three women into custody late Wednesday in connection with the horrific Easter Sunday hit-and-run crash that claimed the lives of 5 people, including three children. SWAT teams surrounded a home on Ailey Lane in Southwest Atlanta early Wednesday after receiving a tip from a neighbor who saw a mechanic working on a gold BMW matching the description of the hit-and-run vehicle inside the home's garage.

Police tossed flash/stun grenades into the home before entering it but they found no one inside.

Around 6:30 pm, a SUV unexpectedly pulled into the garage of the home and was quickly surrounded by SWAT members. Three women in the vehicle -- two older women and one in her twenties -- were taken away in squad cars. Police said no one was under arrest.

According to neighbors, the woman in her twenties is the owner of the BMW that was allegedly involved in the hit-and-run crash. One neighbor said she confronted the young woman last week after seeing a description of the car on the news. But the woman denied being involved in the accident. Police said there is evidence that the BMW had recently been repaired.

Robert and Delisia Carter; the couple’s newborn son, Ethan Blake; and Delisia Carter’s 9-year-old daughter, Kayla, died after the family’s Mercedes collided with the BMW on Camp Creek Parkway between Butner and Old Fairburn roads, resulting in a chain-reaction crash involving a Volkswagen.

The Volkswagen was driven by Tracy Johnson, 43, of Atlanta. Johnson survived the accident, but the impact killed her 6-year-old daughter, Morgan.

  • iscream

    Thanks for the update.

    Who ever fixed the car should be the next to get arrested. I'm sure they saw on the news what happened and heard the description of the car.

    I hope the only reason the faces are blurred out is because they haven't been charged yet. Show them no respect.

  • NYCUTIE

    The people that helped her cover this up should be charged as well! They got the car fixed and all.. How don't you turn yourself in? WTF is wrong with people nowadays??

  • aqtpie

    Morning family!

    Like the others stated, I agree all parties involved must be held accountable. The mechanic who came to the house to fix the car. The neighbor who saw the damaged car but failed to contact authorities. SMH. How cruel and heartless can you be to continue on with your life as if NOTHING happened knowing full well you killed five indiviuals?

  • MIZZ.I_REP_ATL

    I'm glad to here that they finally caught the person who was responsible for this chain reaction/deaths. (They were such a beautiful family).
    But wow, the suspect is 22? SMH..Mannn....
    I wonder (out of the 3 women) who thought they was never gonna get caught for this accident? Big ups to the neightbor for confronting the young lady as well!!!!

  • Shauny

    WOW what a horrible story but I'm glad they got her/them. They weren't going to turn themselves in. I bet it was the neighbor who noticed the damage that called the police. Good for her.

    Seems like such a lovely family, ohhh and the babies. They were just robbed of their lives. It's a shame.

  • keely107

    Just DEAD. WOW. Does anybody know if the deceased were wearing seatbelts? Get in the car with your babies, and no way you can drive for everyone else. Dayum. This just added to the gloom I was feeling bout the 11 year old that hung himself.
