A 6-year-old North Georgia girl is killed after police say her uncle failed to yield to oncoming traffic on a Walker County highway. Their car was struck and destroyed Thursday morning by a truck going the other way. It all happened right in front of Alisha Blassingame's elementary school. "Like a nightmare," said Paula Anderson, Alisha's great aunt. "You wake up up at 8 o'clock to a phone call and you never get out of the nightmare." Alisha was riding with her uncle to Gilbert Elementary, but when he pulled off Highway 193 onto a side road leading to the school, police say he failed to yield.
