A two-vehicle crash in Austell on the morning of December 10 resulted in injuries to at least two persons. It happened on the intersection of the Humphries Hill Road and C.H. James Parkway.
According to the details shared by the Cobb County Police Department, the accident was a result of a collision between two vehicles. One of the vehicles was identified as a gold 2006 Infiniti G35. The other was identified as a 2017 Toyota RAV4.
The Infiniti was traveling northbound along the C.H. James Parkway when it turned onto the Humphries Hill Road. The Toyota was headed southbound on the Parkway. As the Infiniti took a left turn, it came directly into the path of the Toyota. The Toyota then crashed into the Infiniti, causing significant damage to both vehicles.
Both vehicles had single occupants, the drivers, in them at the time of the collision. The driver of the Infiniti was identified by the authorities as Kahlil Harper, 30, of Powder Springs. Harper sustained critical injuries in the crash. Once the first responders and paramedics reached the scene of the crash, he was transported to the Kennestone Hospital via ambulance.
The driver of the Toyota was identified as Jeffery Nelson, 64, of Dallas, Georgia. Nelson also suffered serious injuries although his injuries are reported as non-life-threatening. He was transported to the Cobb General Hospital for further treatment.
It isn’t clear at this point which vehicle had the right of way when the crash occurred. Initially, the Austell Police Department responded to the incident. However, the Cobb County Police Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) later reached the scene and took over the investigations. STEP continues to investigate the two-vehicle crash in Austell. The task force is seeking statements from any eye witnesses who may have seen the accident happen.
