A Paulding County woman was killed in a Wednesday afternoon wreck on Dallas Highway while her teenage son was airlifted to an Atlanta hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Cobb County Police issued a news release Thursday saying the wreck happened just before 1 p.m. the previous day on Dallas Highway, just west of Due West Road in west Cobb.
Delores Sibert, 46, of Hiram was driving a green 1995 Toyota Avalon eastbound on Dallas Highway when she attempted to turn left (northbound) into the Village Green Shopping Center parking lot. As she was attempting to pull into the shopping center, she turned into the path of a silver 2005 Nissan Titan pickup truck which was traveling westbound on Dallas Highway. After the truck struck the passenger side of the car, the impact caused the car to spin and collide with a gray 2004 Toyota Sequoia sport-utility vehicle, which was waiting at the traffic signal to turn onto Dallas Highway from the shopping center parking lot.
Sibert was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital by ambulance where she was pronounced dead. Her 14-year-old son, who was a passenger in the car, was transported by ambulance to WellStar Kennestone Hospital and then by helicopter to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. At the time he was transported, he was listed in critical condition.
The driver of the Nissan pickup truck has been identified as 35-year-old Desmond Smith of Hiram. He was not injured in the collision.
The driver of the Toyota SUV has been identified as 44-year-old Larry Crowson of Marietta. He was not injured in the crash.
No charges are expected to be filed, according to the news release. Anyone with information about it is asked to call (770) 499-3987.
