Judge Denies Bond for Man Involved in Deadly Cobb County Street Racing Accident

May 11, 2019

COBB COUNTY, GEORGIA – According to an online news article published by, a judge has denied bond to a man accused of causing a street racing accident that left two men dead.*

On May 7, 2019, a judge denied bond for a man accused of causing the deaths of two men resulting from an illegal street race. The accident happened on April 7, 2019, when the accused individual, a 19-year-old Austell man, crashed into a vehicle near Floyd and Bates Roads in Mableton in what a witness stated was a street race.  At the time of the accident, the 19-year-old man had a child in the backseat of his vehicle. The occupants of the vehicle he collided with, two men, died of their injuries.

According to the Cobb County Police, the 19-year-old man is facing multiple criminal charges including vehicular homicide, reckless driving, racing, and second-degree cruelty to children.  The relationship between the accused and the child is unknown.  No additional details on the man’s upcoming court appearance or a trial date have been reported.

Street Racing Has Become Popular But Remains Deadly

Cars are not only a form of transportation but are a hobby for many people in Georgia and throughout the United States. Multiple reality television shows reveal just how vast the street racing industry is.  However, most street racing television shows broadcast vehicles racing in designated areas that are free from the public and pedestrians.  This does not necessarily mean that the street racing seen on television is legal, but safety is often discussed and acknowledged as a priority in these shows.

Street racing is dangerous regardless of where a street race takes place, especially when children are involved, as is the case with the Cobb County deadly street racing accident.  While street racing will never be considered a “safe” activity, the risk of injuries and death can be minimized if street racing is in a controlled setting far away from innocent drivers, pedestrians and bystanders.
