A fatal freeway crash following an Atlanta Braves game last year has led to a $1.5 million insurance policy limits settlement, according to plaintiffs’ attorneys Jeb Butler and Tom Giannotti of the Butler Law Firm, who said they believe the cars were racing.

They represented the family of Molly Hall, a 28-year-old actress who was killed in the early morning hours of Oct. 18, 2021, after going out for a night of baseball at Truist Park, Butler said. She was riding in the passenger seat of her own car, a 2012 Hyundai Veloster, being driven by Ryan McDonald, 31, who Butler said was her boyfriend. Their car and a 2017 Ford Mustang driven by Tyshana Forrest, 23, sideswiped each other on I-75 near Mount Paran Road, causing both drivers to lose control, according to the police incident report. The cars bounced into barrier walls on opposite sides of the highway.
