LOCUST GROVE, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say an 11-year-old girl has been killed and six other children were injured in a wreck involving multiple cars on an interstate south of Atlanta.

The state patrol says the driver of another vehicle was injured but not ejected.

The conditions of those injured in the wreck have not been released.

The Georgia Department of Transportation says multiple lanes were blocked as emergency personnel worked to clear the scene.
