MARIETTA, Ga. — Authorities have finally ID the driver of a car that was killed last Friday evening in a chain reaction crash that took place at the intersection of Cobb Parkway and Akers Mill Road.
According to Cobb Police, Sergeant Dana Pierce, they have already identified the 59-year-old man as Warrren Thomas resident of Atlanta. He was confirmed dead on arrival at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital.
After preliminary investigation, authorities surmised that Thomas may have experienced some type of medical distress, which aggravated the crash.
Police Officers reported that Thomas was operating a Chevrolet which for unknown reasons entered the intersection on a red light. The miscalculated entrance was disastrous as the vehicle was struck by a Mitsubishi Montero. The Montero was traveling southbound along Cobb Parkway. The Chevrolet was able to continue in an easterly direction until it was struck a second time by a Toyota Camry.
There was one occupant of the Toyota who sustained very minor injuries while the driver of the Mitsubishi was transported to a hospital for treatment. Medical staff stated that his injuries were non-life threatening.
Police added that the investigation of the crash is continuing and they are gathering more facts. They are requesting anyone with information about it to call (770) 499-3987.
Police are trying to know why the Chevrolet entered the intersection even when the light was red. They want to know if the factors of alcohol, speed, distraction while driving and others could be the reason for the mishap. They are also trying to find out if anyone in the crash will be filed charges.
