Roswell Police continue to investigate an accident that occurred outside the Chattahoochee Nature Center.

According to Public Information Officer Lisa Holland, a vehicle "traveling southbound on Willeo Road, hit a parked car, then hit two pedestrians."

The car came to a halt after hitting a power pole near by.

The cause of the accident remains undisclosed.

Both pedestrians were transported to the hospital, but the extent of their injuries are unknown.

Holland also added that the vehicle responsible was carrying a "juvenile backseat passenger," was transported to Children's Hospital.

The juvenile's father, who was driving the car, accompanied his child in the ambulance to the hospital, according to Holland.

She added "investigators did not talk with him at the scene."

Willeo Road was shut down, but according to a tweet  from Chattahoochee Nature Center at about 12:46 p.m., Willeo Road has been re-opened.

The car that was initially hit was "parked and unattended on the side of the road," said Holland.

Damage to the power pole was reported and Holland noted efforts will be made by Georgia Power to replace the pole as early as March 21.

The Neighbor will continue to provide updates on this case as details become available.
