At that point, the Accord landed in front of a southbound 1993 Toyota Camry, according to the crash report.
Otilio Acevedo Sanchez, who was driving the Camry, swerved to avoid the Accord but instead hit the passenger’s side.
The Accord went from the far left lane to the far right lane, authorities said.
Chavez, 20, of Tucker, died at the scene.
Acevedo Sanchez, 47, of Tucker, was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with serious injuries, according to the crash report.
His condition was not known Friday.
While the investigation is ongoing, preliminary findings suggest speed played a factor in the crash, police said.
