Two Crashes Kill Two in Cobb County in Two Day Time Period
COBB COUNTY, GA- Ajc.com writes that two crashes in Cobb County occurred this week in less than two days’ time. The first of the fatal incidents involved a teenager who was traveling on a motorcycle when a Nissan Altima turned left in front of the bike. The incident occurred at the intersection of Old Mountain Park and Alabama Road in the mid-afternoon.*
The eighteen-year-old was ejected from his motorcycle. Responders rushed the young victim to a nearby hospital, but he was declared dead. Reports indicate that the teen was a student at the River Ridge High School, where he was a senior and a member of the wrestling team. Following news of the crash, the victim’s friends decorated the boy’s parking spot at the school. A spokesperson for the school stated that the spot would remain open for the remainder of the year. The students are also planning another tribute to their classmate and will hold a balloon release this week.
The second victim was a 91-year-old man who was turning left in his Mazda truck when an oncoming Infinity struck the vehicle. The victim was taken to the hospital with severe injuries and died within hours of the wreck.
The person driving the Infinity was also injured in the collision, but the injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Two other fatal collisions occurred in the county just days prior to these two tragic wrecks. A retired judge died in one of the earlier accidents, and a 61-year-old man died in the other earlier crash just hours later. All of the incidents are still being investigated and officers asked that anyone with information contact the police.
