Stretch of Road in Cobb County, Georgia Sees 180 Accidents in Two Years


February 28, 2019

COBB COUNTY, GA. – As reported in an online news story from wsbtv.com, a specific portion of a roadway in Cobb County, Georgia, has been the site of more than 180 vehicle accidents in only two years. Accident data along the road was gathered and analyzed by reporters from Channel 2 Action News.*

The stretch of road that has been the cause of all these accidents is located on Marietta, Georgia’s Powder Springs Street, in the area between Baltimore Place and Cunningham Road. Reporters learned from looking at accident reports that a total of 181 reported collisions happened in only two years in this section of Powder Springs Street.

Residents in the area know that the street sees a lot of accidents, and some of them have family members who have been involved in those 181 accidents, or they witnessed one of the accidents. 

“My son was in a bus accident right here,” said a resident who spoke with reporters and was quoted in the WSB-TV article. “I think one person hit their head on the window really hard.” 

This woman said her son was fortunately not injured in the accident. The Cobb County Police Department told reporters that congestion on the street and distractions are two of the leading causes for vehicle accidents. Sgt. Wayne Delk with the Cobb County Police Department was quoted in the WSB-TV article as saying a lot of the crashes are rear-end collisions and occur during situations of stop-and-go traffic. 

The Georgia Department of Transportation would be in charge of any changes that might be made to the street. The DOT reportedly said that there might be few options for improving the design of the road, but that the department would look into potential improvements.
