ACWORTH, Ga. (AP) -- A woman was killed in an accident during an alleged carjacking and a suspect was shot dead by a bystander while attempting to flee from the scene Monday, police said.

The woman died when a cement truck hit the SUV she and her suspected carjacker were riding in. The alleged carjacker was then shot by a man who had the witnessed the crash, Cobb County police said.

Witnesses said the woman -- identified as Kimberly Boyd, 30, of Acworth -- was carjacked in her white Toyota Sequoia at about 9:30 a.m. along Cobb Parkway near Acworth, police said.

The suspect drove the SUV south about two miles and then tried to make a left turn when the SUV was broadsided by an oncoming cement truck, police said. The woman, in the passenger seat, was killed instantly.

The suspect was killed by a man who had driven up in a black pick-up truck, said Dana Pierce, a Cobb County police spokesman. The man -- identified as Shawn Roberts of Acworth -- said he saw the suspect strike the woman and drive erratically, Pierce said. He also saw the suspect emerge from the Sequoia carrying a handgun, he said.

Roberts was questioned by police and released.

The name of the suspect was not immediately released.

Acworth is about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta.

I guess it was a good shoot since they let him go, but "suspect attempted to flee" is kind of strange. Glad he killed him, don't get me wrong....
The guy presued and shot him while he was attempting to flee? Did the jacker have a weapon or something? I just woke up, am I missing something?

I see 2nd Degree Murder charges in Mr Roberts' very near future.
