Police say a Corvette driver was driving at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his vehicle in a wreck west of Marietta that sent two to the hospital Sunday.

Investigators said the crash took place just before 3 p.m. on Powder Springs Street just west of County Services Parkway.

Officer Sydney Melton said 51-year-old Jeffrey D. Lincoln of Dallas, Georgia, was driving a grey 2016 Chevrolet Corvette “at a high rate of speed” when he lost control of the vehicle and crossed into oncoming lanes, colliding with a silver 2011 Toyota RAV4 driven by 49-year-old Maria A. Pineda-Chacon, police said.

Both were transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, Lincoln with injuries police described as serious and Pineda-Chacon with injuries police called non-life threatening.

The collision remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Cobb County Police Department at 770-499-3987.
