Driver killed in crash at Cobb County construction site

A man was killed Sunday morning when his car crashed into a metal gate at the entrance to an under-construction Cobb County subdivision. 

The driver, identified by police as 33-year-old Darius J. Sanders of Marietta, died some time between 4 and 7:30 a.m. Sunday. He was found in his silver 2014 Chevrolet Malibu in a subdivision on Twisted Oak Lane off Jamerson Road, according to Cobb police spokesman Officer Neil Penirelli. 

“The vehicle collided with a metal arm which penetrated the passenger compartment of the Chevrolet and caused fatal injuries to the driver,” Penirelli said in a news release. 

The arm was being used to restrict entrance to the property, he told AJC.com.
