Widower wants justice after highway crash

Posted: Updated:

Gwinnett County police are looking for witnesses of a crash on I-85 on Monday. They are trying to find the driver of a tractor-trailer that was involved.

A SUV flipped several times on I-85 south near Steve Reynolds Boulevard early Monday afternoon. Syed Iqbal was driving that SUV with his wife in the passenger seat and two children in the back. He said a tractor-trailer drifted into his lane. He was forced into the other lane where his SUV and a box truck hit. The SUV then flipped several times.

"It's such a small mistake on paper, but it can cause so much damage. It's devastating," said Iqbal.

Rabia Adnan wasn't wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle. She died from her injuries.

Iqbal had scratches on his arm. The couple's 7-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter were bruised.

"Almost every day, she looks for her mom in the house, walks around," said Iqbal.

Iqbal said he wants the driver of the tractor-trailer to be found so his family can have justice.

"I would have some sort of satisfaction, someone did not just hit us and go on their way," said Iqbal.

Officers said a witness did identify a tractor-trailer driver who officers interviewed. They said they did not have enough evidence to charge that driver.
