The Cobb County Police Department Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) is currently investigating a serious injury crash on Interstate 285. According to a news release, the accident happened early Tuesday morning, November 9th, at about 3:30 a.m. The cause of the accident appears to be a failure to change lanes properly.
The public information released by the county police revealed the preliminary inquiry placed the accident on southbound Interstate 285 at Atlanta Road. The police said that a black 2007 BMW 530i was southbound on the interstate when it entered the lane occupied by a white 2008 Freightliner truck.
The Freightliner truck then struck the rear of the BMW. The collision impact sent the BMW into the median wall, and it rested under the Atlanta Road bridge. The Freightliner continued further south of the BMW before stopping in the left lane.
The BMW driver, Dominique Hayward, 33, of Powder Springs, sustained severe injuries, and medics took him to Kennestone Hospital for treatment. The Freightliner driver, identified as Troy Russel, 50, of Antwerp, Ohio, did not suffer any injury. The investigation into the injury crash on Interstate 285 is ongoing, and anyone with relevant information should contact the CCPD STEP Unit at 770-499-3987.
