Auto accidents are an unfortunate fact of life for those that drive. They can be as simple as a fender-bender or as severe as an accident that claims lives. Though the causes of many accidents are readily apparent, sometimes there is no immediate cause, leaving police asking the public for clues.
An early morning accident on June 20th claimed the lives of two adults and seriously injured four children. Cobb County police released the name of the driver of the vehicle, 27-year-old Katrina E. Morris of Powder Springs.
Morris had been driving a 1998 Honda Passport along Clay Road in Mableton, approaching Flint Hill Road. For reasons unknown, Morris lost control of the vehicle and left the road. She collided with a tree on the northern shoulder of the road.
Morris and a male passenger in the front seat both died at the scene.
Police reported that all four juveniles in the back seat of the Passport were seriously injured. Ranging in age from 10-years-old to infant, medics had to rush all the children to Scottish Rite in Atlanta for treatment.
Mary Caughron, who has lived in the house whose yard the accident occurred, has lived there for 45 years. She reported hearing what sounded like a motorcycle backfiring and nothing else. She came outside and found the wreckage.
The collision is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cobb County Police S.T.E.P. (Selective Traffic Enforcement Program) Unit at 770-499-3987.
