A Marietta woman died late Christmas Eve in a two-car collision on Smyrna Powder Springs Road, and Cobb Police say poor weather conditions, including dense fog, were a contributing factor.
Luca Kosic, 46, of Marietta, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident at the intersection of Smryna Powder Springs Road and Trellis Oaks Drive, according to Cobb Police spokesman Michael Bowman.
He said Kosic was a passenger in a gold 1999 Toyota Camry traveling southbound on Smyrna Powder Springs Road shortly after 10:30 p.m. Monday when it was struck by a maroon 1994 Toyota Camry heading northbound.
Mara Tadic, the driver of the 1999 Camry, and three other passengers in her car, 23-year-old Andeiko Tadic Acworth, 27-year-old Angelina Tadic of Acworth and a 16-year-old juvenile, were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital and treated for minor injuries, police said.
Huy Q. Tran, 39, of Austell, the driver of the 1994 Camry, also was treated for minor injuries at the hospital.
Bowman said the car Tran was driving veered over a double yellow line and partially into the southbound lane, striking the vehicle with the five occupants.
He said no charges have been made as Cobb Police continue the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call 770-499-3987.
