COBB COUNTY, GA (8/3/2020) – The Cobb County Police Department is investigating a fatal crash that left one person dead and another injured on Sunday night. The accident occurred at 10:34 p.m. on the I-285 west ramp to I-75 north.
According to authorities, 26-year-old Laclara Johnson was driving her gray 2020 Honda Accord west on I-285 in the right lane when a 1988 Toyota 4Runner driven by 39-year-old Joseph Costyn was traveling behind here.
