Two people are dead and two more are seriously injured after a late-night head-on crash in Cobb County.

The wreck happened on Hiram Acworth Highway north of Holland Road around 11 p.m. Wednesday, according to Cobb police spokesman Officer Aniello Penirelli.

Stephanie Jenkins, 24, of Resaca, was driving northbound in a silver 2012 Ford Taurus. Keymont Jenkins, 23, of Douglasville, was a passenger in the car, Penirelli said.

Jenkins was driving behind a burgundy 2000 Freightliner towing a trailer, he said. Penirelli said Jenkins tried to pass in the southbound lane in a passing zone.

When she moved into the southbound lane, Jenkins’ car crashed head-on into a blue 2004 Nissan Maxima, Penirelli said. The Taurus then collided with the left side of the Freightliner.

The driver and passenger of the Maxima, Steven Bishop, 57, of Dallas, and Tommy Johnson, 46, of Dallas, were both killed, police said. Stephanie and Keymont Jenkins were both taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the Freightliner was not hurt in the crash.

The collision is still under investigation by Cobb police. No charges have been filed.
