Augusta, GA -

This week multiple cases of road rage in Georgia turned deadly.

Cobb County officers say road rage is the reason behind a fatal shooting near Kennesaw, Georgia. 

21-year-old Kim Kilgore is dead after authorities say she was shot inside the gates of her apartment complex.

The suspect, 22-year-old Lindsey Sparkles Lashayla, has been arrested and charged with murder.

Police say a case of road rage incident between people in two vehicles led to a fight at the apartment complex where Kilgore was shot.

Friends say Kilgore who was a student at Kennesaw State University died after being taken off life support.

Another case occurred near Gainesville, GA Friday morning.  An out-of-control pickup truck driver repeatedly rammed a couple from behind on a highway in Gainesville.  The couple then called 9-1-1:

Caller:  We have got a red pickup truck following us
Caller:  He just hit us! He just hit us!
Driver: He's about to hit somebody head-on.
Caller: He just hit somebody head-on. No! No! No!
Dispatcher: Ma'am, ma'am. Calm down.
Driver: He just hit somebody head-on going about 70 miles an hour.

Investigators say that's when 48-year-old Michael Williams, the driver behind the wheel in the pickup, hit 22-year-old Chelsea Gerrish head on killing both drivers.

The couple heard on the 911 calls has not been identified.
