Two drivers were killed early Sunday morning in a wrong-way crash on Georgia 400 in Forsyth County. 

According to information released Monday morning by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office, deputies along with personnel from the Forsyth County Fire Department arrived on the scene of the crash in the southbound lanes of the highway between the Majors road overpass and the Shiloh Road overpass. 

The 911 center began receiving calls at 1:27 a.m. about a wrong-way driver traveling southbound in the northbound lanes at speeds in excess of 100 mph.

Investigators so far have determined Silas Brown, 35, of Atlanta was driving an Alfa Romeo Stelvio and hit a Lexus IS250 being driven by Tarik Kindell, 22, of Cumming. One of the vehicles burst into flames when the crash occurred. Both Brown and Kindell died at the scene. 

As a result of the incident, Georgia 400 northbound was closed for several hours Sunday morning.

The investigation into the fatal crash is ongoing.
