MARIETTA, Ga. — A family is left grieving after a 30-year-old woman was killed while driving northbound on Interstate 75 early Thursday morning.

Marietta Police said Lauren Coyne of Smyrna lost control of her vehicle on the highway by Delk Road. Coyne's Ford Escape rotated into other lanes, police said, and a tractor-trailer rammed into it. 

The crash caused backups around 6:30 a.m. as authorities rushed to the incident.

Coyne was badly hurt and rushed to WellStar Kennestone Hospital where doctors pronounced her dead.

Crash investigators said they are not sure why Coyne lost control of her vehicle. They're asking anyone who may have any information to call (770) 794-5344.
