Cobb County Police Department's Selective Traffic Enforcement Program Unit investigated the crash, which yielded information leading investigators to believe that the driver of a red 2003 Chevrolet S-10 truck was traveling southbound on Cobb Parkway in the northbound lanes. At the same time, the driver of a maroon 2009 BMW 335i was traveling north in the northbound lanes. The vehicles collided just north of the intersection at Dallas-Acworth Highway.
Both drivers were transported to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. The driver of the BMW had non-life threatening injuries and has been identified as Michael L. Wilson, 24, of Acworth. The driver of the S-10 truck, identified as Brandon R. Meadors, 41, of Cartersville, died as a result of his injuries at the hospital.
