Marietta, GA (March 13, 2023) – On Saturday morning, March 11, a DUI accident took place on a major roadway in Marietta that seriously injured one person.
According to Marietta Police, the accident happened around 8:25 a.m. on Cobb Parkway. Police confirmed that 62-year-old Reginald Williams was traveling on the roadway in the area when a motorist traveling at high speeds slammed into the back of his vehicle. This caused Williams’ Chevrolet to spin out of control, causing it to land off the side of the road.
Several Marietta responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. Williams sustained severe injuries and was rushed to WellStar Kennestone Hospital for treatment. Nobody else was hurt in the accident.
The driver of the second vehicle, who has since been identified as 24-year-old Michaela Hudson, was not hurt but remained at the scene. She has since been arrested on charges of driving under the influence and causing serious injury by vehicle.
The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues. Police will update with more information as it becomes available.
