An Atlanta woman has intentionally rammed her car into a vehicle carrying her three-month-old daughter, killing her in the process and injuring the child’s father, the police confirmed.

The man who called 911 to rescue Undra Henderson and his three-month-old daughter from a mangled vehicle said he found the 27-year-old bleeding and trapped with Khy’undra Henderson lying on the car floor.

When firemen eventually rescued the pair and they were rushed to the hospital, the toddler couldn’t survive, however, the father is in a stable condition.

It emerged Titayanna Phillips, the Atlanta mother “caused the death of her three-month-old daughter by intentionally crashing her car into the vehicle of her daughter’s father.” Police say Undra Henderson had placed his daughter, Khy’undra in his Honda sedan and was driving away when the baby’s mother, Titayanna Phillips, raced after them.

Phillips, 21, rammed her SUV multiple times into Henderson’s sedan till he lost control and slammed the car against a pole on Chappell Road near Eason Street in northwest Atlanta.
