Marietta, GA – Update: Teen Killed in Motorcycle Accident on Piedmont Rd 

Marietta, GA (May 28, 2022) – On Friday, May 27, a teen was killed in a fatal motorcycle accident that took place on a major roadway in Marietta. 

According to Cobb County Police, the accident happened on Piedmont Road. Police confirmed that a 25-year-old driver was in a Volkswagen Jetta in the area when the driver started to make a left turn onto Piedmont. Their vehicle collided with a Kawasaki motorcycle, which struck the front of the car when the collision occurred. The driver of the motorcycle was thrown from the vehicle. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The motorcyclist, identified as a local 17-year-old, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. Nobody else was hurt in the accident. 

Due to the severity of the accident, a large portion of the road was blocked in the area for some time. It is not known if the driver of the Jetta was charged for their role in the accident. 

No further details have been released but police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the accident. 

We offer our condolences to the family and friends of the teen victim at this time.
