Kennesaw, GA (August 24, 2022) – On the afternoon of August 24th, a major collision involving a car and a pedestrian happened near the Kennesaw Due West Road and Westover Way intersection. 

The accident is under investigation by Cobb County and the Kennesaw Police Department. Per reports from authorities, on Wednesday evening, shortly after 5:00 p.m., a 15-year-old was crossing Kennesaw Due West Road at the intersection with Westover Way when a 62-year-old Kennesaw man driving a 1981 Toyota Land Cruiser came through the intersection.

The teen was reportedly crossing the street at a crosswalk when they were hit by the front of the Toyota. The teen was then airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital. Police say the Toyota driver was uninjured.

The cause of this collision has yet to be determined. If anyone has any more information on this collision, please get in touch with the authorities.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured teen and their loved ones.
