    The baby, transported to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite, suffered a traumatic brain injury, according to Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services. The baby's right leg also was broken in the crash.
    Police identified the dead couple as Rick Dean Headen, 48 and Charlotte Ann Sedtal, 40, both of Sour Lake, Texas. They were the parents of the baby who was in the rear of the car, police said.
    The accident happened about 11 a.m. on Knox Bridge Hwy about five miles west of Canton.
    Headen and Sedtal were heading eastbound in a Ford Focus and appeared to have veered into the other lane, hitting a pick up truck, according to Lt. Jay Baker with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office.
    "It appears they were driving through Georgia on their way to another state," Baker told the AJC. "A family member from another state is currently on their way to the hospital. That relative will have temporary custody of the child when he is released from Scottish Rite," Baker added.
    The couple died at the scene. Two adults in the pick up truck were injured but their injuries do not appear to life-threatening. They were transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital.
    The accident is under investigation.

    My extended family had to fly my Grandpa from FL to IL and it was nerve wracking. At least he had insurance and burial expenses paid for. The flight was expensive, thats for sure, it was in 87 I believe.

    DH talked to the mothers brother.. baby is in a regular room now... alcohol; was a factor. the dad had a open beer between his legs and a beer in his pocket. he didnt have a licence. was up til two am the morning of the wreck got up at 6 refused to let the babys mother drive. he was suposedly mentally abusive to the mother. her family tried to get her to leave him but she wouldnt do it. funeral is saturday/ I really hate funerals . I try to avoid them as much as possible. I will be going to this one though. The mothers family are having to fight the dads daughter for custody of the baby
