Cobb County, GA – Deadly Multi-Vehicle Accident Shuts Down I-75

Cobb County, Georgia (April 18, 2023) – At least two people were killed in a crash on Interstate 75 in Cobb County on Tuesday morning. 

The Marietta Police Department confirmed a fatal crash occurred around 5:15 a.m. on the northbound lanes of I-75 at Delk Road.

The accident began when a car stalled on the interstate, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. Authorities said the passengers got out of the car and were hit by another vehicle. Following the fatal collision, the second vehicle was also involved in another accident.

At least five vehicles were involved in the accident. According to police, at least two people have died.

The identities of the victims and the conditions of anyone else involved in the crash have not been released by police.

As crews worked at the scene, the crash shut down multiple northbound lanes on the interstate. To avoid the area, traffic was diverted onto an exit ramp.


I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.


Fatal Car Accidents in Georgia

Everyone’s worst nightmare is a close friend or family member dying or suffering serious injuries in a car accident. When a loved one is killed in an accident, a family may face both financial and emotional difficulties.

A person who has been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver has the legal right to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation from the negligent driver. They are entitled to compensation for any direct expenses incurred as a result of the accident.

If an accident victim dies as a result of their injuries, the surviving family members may sue the at-fault driver for wrongful death. The deceased’s family will be able to seek justice for their loved one.

The family can file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek financial compensation for funeral expenses and emotional distress caused by their loved one’s untimely death.

When a family member dies as a result of another person’s negligence, the last thing on your mind is likely to be settling an insurance claim or filing a wrongful death lawsuit. The statute of limitations, on the other hand, severely limits the amount of time you have to file a wrongful death claim, so you should act quickly.

A Wrongful Death Lawyer will ensure that you receive the following compensation:

  • Funeral and Burial Expenses
  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Loss of Future Income
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Emotional Trauma

If a family member was killed in a car accident, you should immediately contact a Wrongful Death Attorney. Obtaining the compensation you are owed can be difficult without the assistance of a lawyer.
