A 22-year-old man from Cobb County was killed in a two-car crash Wednesday night in Paulding County, officials said.

Antonio Brown of Marietta was driving a Ford F-250 pickup truck south on Bobo Road when he struck a patch of ice while negotiating a curve, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

The pickup failed to maintain its lane and left the roadway, struck a fence, a tree and a culvert, the GSP said. Brown’s truck continued east and struck the rear of a Ford F-150 pickup truck that was parked and unattended in the driveway of a house in the 1600 block of Bobo Road, the GSP said.

Brown’s F-250 landed on its driver's side and he was pronounced dead at the scene by the Paulding County coroner.

Three passengers survived the crash, but one person was hurt.

“It is believed that alcohol played a role in this crash,” the GSP said.
