Report: Some of Deadliest Georgia Roads Located in Cobb County
COBB COUNTY, GA. – According to a news story reported online by ajc.com, some of the deadliest roads in Georgia are located in Cobb County. Car accidents can occur anywhere, but it appears from recent reporting that Cobb County sees a larger number of collisions in certain areas than others.*
A recent report used information from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System, which is federally maintained, from the years 2013 through 2015 and compared that data to information from the most recent United States Census (which was completed in 2010). The report documented areas of road where five or more fatal vehicle accidents occurred within the span of 2.5 miles.
The report found that 277 miles of roadway in Georgia were the sites of 427 deadly vehicle collisions. Those 427 collisions resulted in 460 lost lives. One stretch of road in Cobb County accounted for a lot of fatal accidents. This was a nearly 4.5-mile stretch on South Cobb Drive, where six deadly accidents caused seven deaths between 2013 and 2015. The roadway in this area is home to several city buildings and service stations.
In Kennesaw, Georgia, according to the report, a span of roadway just over a mile long was also the site of a large number of fatal crashes. The stretch on Interstate 75 was in the top three in the state of Georgia for highest number of deadly accidents per mile. An average of 4.6 deadly accidents per mile occur on this road.
In addition, the report found that another section of I-75 in Cobb County stretching close to 2 miles was the site of five fatalities from 2013 to 2015. Close to 80 people were killed in vehicle crashes on less than 61 miles of I-75 in Cobb County, which represented the highest number of fatal accidents on any stretch of interstate in Georgia.
