Kevin Palmer, of Marietta, was driving a silver Honda Accord northbound on Sandy Plains Road when he attempted to turn left onto Wigley Road shortly after 9 a.m., Sgt. Dana Pierce with Cobb police said. Palmer had a green signal, but pulled into the path of a brown 2013 Freightliner box truck, which was southbound on Sandy Plains Road, Pierce said.
The impact pushed the box truck into the path of a white 2007 Chevrolet Silverado truck, which was preparing to turn right into the southbound lane of Sandy Plains Road, according to police. The box truck then struck a traffic intersection control box before coming to a stop in the grass, police said.
