A suicidal woman has survived after driving her Porsche the wrong way onto an Atlanta interstate before smashing into two vehicles and injuring three other people.
Patty Ann Cressaty, 67, admitted that she had purposefully driven northbound on Ga. 400 southbound on Sunday morning in an attempt to take her life, police said on Monday.
She raced along the emergency lane of the busy interstate around 11am before striking the median wall and colliding with two other vehicles, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
Witnesses managed to pull the married mother from her burning car. She was unconscious but breathing.
‘She just needed help, and people were screaming and nobody was helping her,’ one witness told WSB. ‘So I just ran over there and just yanked the door open and tried to get here out of the car as best as I could.’
