Date: March 1, 2009

Victim: Adegoke Aladegbemi, Adeolu Julianna Aladegbemi

Location: Marietta, Ga.

Model: 2005 Toyota Camry

Details: Cobb County, Ga., police have been unable to explain the crash that took the lives of a Nigerian immigrant from Sandy Springs, Ga., and his 6-year-old daughter.

Their Toyota had run a stop sign at a T-intersection in a Marietta office park and plunged into an ornamental pond, police reported. Adegoke Aladegbemi, 57, and Adeolu Julianna Aladegbemi, 6, were still alive but unconscious when firefighters pulled them from the submerged Camry. The pair were pronounced dead upon arrival at a nearby hospital.

The car was owned by the Nigerian Consulate in Atlanta, where Aladegbemi had worked as a driver for diplomats visiting from his native country. A consular official confirmed the chancellery had filed a complaint with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but declined to discuss further details about the accident.

The 2005 Camry is not included in the recent Toyota recalls.
