It is an unfortunate fact that drunken drivers pose a significant risk to motorist traveling in and through Cobb County. The danger of becoming victim of DUI is even greater on week-end nights. According to WSBTV a suspected drunk driver crashed into a Cobb County Police Officer’s cruiser at 11:30 Friday night. The officer was parked with his emergency lights on, helping with lane closures for road construction on Interstate 575 south at the Bells Ferry exit.
From review of the scene photographs this was clearly a tremendous and horrible impact. Both the officer and the suspected drunk driver were injured. The officer was transported to Kennestone Hospital with head injuries. My wife and Iare praying for a quick and full recovery for the injured officer and the other driver.
