ATLANTA -- Two women sitting on a brick wall were struck by a car Friday night, which resulted in one of the women losing her left leg.

A car making a turn on Peeples St. left the roadway and struck Adrienne Smith and Brianna Johnson. Both women were transported to Grady Hospital. Smiths' leg below her knee was severed and she is currently in critical condition.

The car, which is a white 2013 Ford Edge, continued and struck a chained link fence, which was property of the Atlanta Public School System.

The driver was observed by APS security and described as a black male.

The suspect was not located. The car is believed to be stolen from an Avis rental lot.
