Teen Critical After East Cobb Accident

A 16-year-old girl and a friend were hit by a car Monday night crossing the Johnson Ferry-Shallowford intersection on foot.

A teenager is in critical condition after being hit by a car Monday night as she and a friend crossed a busy East Cobb intersection, according to a report by WSB-TV.

The station reported that the injured teen, an 18-year-old girl, was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital with severe head injuries after the accident, which occurred as she and a 19-year-old male were crossing the intersection of Johnson Ferry Road and Shallowford Road. 

The male was not injured and the WSB report indicated that the driver of the Honda Accord that struck the pedestrians was not at fault because she had the right-of-way. 

The Marietta Daily Journal reported the pedestrians were identified as Austin Leake of Decatur and 18-year-old Darion Elizabeth Hugh-Sam of Marietta and that charges would be pending. 

The newspaper said the motorist, 82-year-old Evelyn Tauchert, was not injured and refused treatment.
