11 Alive reported Sunday on a series of connected car crashes in Cobb County that caused serious injuries to an elderly man.
According to Marietta Police Department, a group of car enthusiasts was attempting to pass in no-passing zones on Whitlock Avenue, a major thoroughfare through the Atlanta suburb, causing a chain reaction of accidents. As they headed westbound near the intersection with Dallas Highway Circle and in front of Kennesaw Memorial Park Cemetery, a 41-year-old Austell man driving a Dodge Charger crossed the center line and had a head-on collision with an 84-year-old driver who was headed eastbound. The impact sent the elderly driver’s car careening into a Ford Mustang while the Charger crashed into a Chevrolet Malibu.
The elderly man was transported to a local hospital with what were described as life-threatening injuries.
The Malibu, Mustang, and Charger were all traveling together to a motor club meet and members of the club stated they had gotten separated at a red light and were trying to catch up with the group.
Charges have not been filed as of yet; the investigation is being handled by Marietta Police Department’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (S.T.E.P.) and anyone with information is asked to contact them at (770) 794-5352.
