Bright orb descending over I-20 at Wesley Chapel Road

I was driving on I-20 east away from Atlanta and a bright condensed white light caught my attention ahead and to my right, so that it appeared to be south of I-20. The light was like a shooting star but about 20 times as bright. It was descending rapidly at a slight angle, and disappeared behind the trees. This was definitely not a shooting star, it was moving more slowly and deliberately than that and was too bright. As I kept driving there was an accident that had just happened on I-20 not far from where the light was headed, although the light appeared to be heading more south away from the interstate. Also, the trajectory was as of a plane crashing at a steep angle, or a flare coming down.
