ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A trip to school Wednesday morning in Moultrie turned fatal when a father lost control of his SUV, resulting in the death of his seven year old daughter.

The Georgia State Patrol Specialized Reconstruction Collision Team was called in to investigate the one vehicle crash along Highway 37 west near Tara Street.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, 43 year old Elias Garcia ran off the north shoulder of Highway 37 and when he over corrected Garcia struck a driveway embankment flipping the Ford Expedition.

Neither six year old Elia Garcia nor seven year old Danielle Campos were wearing seatbelts. Campos died at the scene. Garcia and Elia were transported to the hospital and are said to be in good condition.

Both girls are Garcia's biological children.
