MARIETTA — A Marietta man was accused by the Cobb County Police Department of being high on marijuana when he caused a four-car crash on South Cobb Drive at Barclay Circle near Southern Polytechnic State University.

According to the warrant, Oluwaseyi Agboola fell asleep behind the wheel of his 2010 Infiniti G37, with a New York license plate Thursday as he traveled in the southbound lane, and began to veer into the northbound lane.

That is when the driver of a 2005 Ford Super Duty truck had to steer off the road and strike a sign to avoid a collision, the warrant stated.

Police say when Agboola awoke, he swerved out of the wrong lane, striking a 2003 Honda Accord, which caused the Honda to go air bound and strike another vehicle, a 2005 Mercury Mariner.

The driver of the Honda suffered a fractured right femur, according to the warrant.

When the police examined Agboola’s car, they found next to the driver’s seat a burned “marijuana cigarette with a small amount of blood on it,” according to the warrant.

Agboola was arrested at Kennestone Hospital and charged with a felony count for serious injury by a vehicle, and other misdemeanor charges for failure to maintain a lane, possessing less than an ounce of marijuana and driving under the influence.

He was released the next day on a $15,000 bond.
