HENRY Co., Ga. -- Henry County police are asking for help in indentifying the driver of a fatal hit-and-run accident.

According to Henry County Sgt. Joey Smith, Tamika Walker, 32, of Atlanta was pronounced dead Tuesday at 11:31 a.m. by Grady Hospital Officials. She died from internal injuries.

Walker and four family members were transported by ground to Grady with serious injuries.

The accident happened on Sunday, July 8 at approximately 3:30 p.m., on I-75 N near the 226 mile marker, close to the Flippen Road overpass. This is just north of the Eagles Landing exit.
