Everyone hates traffic, but it is something people who live in Metro Atlanta deal with daily. Days like last Thursday are thankfully rare. A deadly auto accident led to massive 2-hour delays on a major Atlanta metro interstate last Thursday.
Early Thursday morning, a man was ejected from his vehicle in an accident that shut down most of the southbound lanes of I-75.
Sometime around 4:04 a.m. Brian Kibler lost control of his red BMW, striking a gray Infiniti. The accident was located just south of North Marietta Parkway on Interstate 75.
The force of the impact sent the BMW flipping several times, ejecting Kibler. The Infiniti wound up in a ditch.
43-year-old Kibler was pronounced dead at the scene. Nicholas Boyett, 28, was the driver of the Infiniti. He was taken to Kennestone Wellstar Hospital with minor injuries and later released.
The accident led to major backups in Cobb County. At one point, the trip time from Wade Green Road to the Perimeter exceeded two hours.
Even though all lanes were open by 8 a.m., heavy delays were still in effect an hour later.
Marietta police are investigating the cause of the accident. Anyone with any information is asked to call 770-794-5364.
