COBB COUNTY, GA – According to an online news article at cbs46.com, police are conducting an investigation of the accident that left two seriously injured in Cobb County.*
Police are investigating a crash that occurred in Cobb County leaving two individuals with serious injuries. The three-vehicle accident happened in the early evening at Bells Ferry Road close to Adair Drive.
Per investigators, a Cobb County Transit was at a bus stop on the southerly side of Bells Ferry Road, located north of Adair Drive. A Subaru Outback, driven by a 61-year-old woman, was behind the CCT bus and stopped. At this point, a Ford Mustang, driven by an 18-year-old girl from Marietta, Georgia, swerved to the left and hit the Subaru. Then, the operator of a Ford went into the northerly lane of Bells Ferry Road and slammed into a Toyota Camry head-on that was driven by a 19-year-old. The Camry then ran onto a sidewalk, went down a grade, and landed in a parking lot.
The driver of the Subaru was uninjured. However, the other two drivers were taken to a local hospital where they are being treated for serious injuries. The accident remains under investigation by the local police. Those with knowledge of the crash are urged to contact the Cobb County Police. There are no further details on the accident at this time.
Multiple car accidents can occur in a variety of ways. Most likely, they happen in three types of crashes, which are as follows:
- Crashes at intersections. When a driver is seeking to get through a yellow light and beat a red light, drives through a red light, or does not yield the right of way located at an intersection, the individual’s vehicle can create a chain reaction accident.
- Accidents on highways. Multiple vehicle accidents located on major roads can be dangerous given that they involve high speeds. Accidents that involve high speeds can cause several cars to be involved in a pileup, resulting in drivers who are not able to swerve out of the way.
- Rear-end crashes. A rear-end crash can manifest into a multiple vehicle accident when the motorist behind another car hits into the vehicle in front of it, potentially causing the car in front to rear-end the vehicle in front of it.
