Atlanta, GA (May 8, 2023) – On Saturday afternoon, May 6, two people were killed in a fatal head-on collision that took place at an Atlanta intersection.
According to Atlanta Police, the accident happened at an unknown time in the afternoon at the intersection of James Jackson Parkway and Browntown Road around the area of the Cobb County line. Police confirmed that a driver was traveling in the area when they started to pass a second vehicle. They suddenly slammed into a third vehicle that was driving in the opposite direction near the intersection.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were dispatched to the scene. There were both a driver and a passenger inside the vehicle that attempted to switch lanes. Both of the parties were ejected from the vehicle. The passenger in that vehicle was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. The driver in that same vehicle was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Police confirmed that the driver in the third vehicle was also pronounced dead at the scene. Three other passengers throughout the vehicles were also hospitalized.
The roadway, which is known for being dangerous in the area for its hills and sharp turns, was closed down for a period of time after the accident.
No further details have been released at this time. The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues.
We would like to offer our warmest condolences to the family and friends of the victims of this accident. We also hope that the injured victims receive a full recovery.
