MARIETTA — An 18-year-old man is in critical condition after his Honda Civic was crushed against a fence by larger vehicles on North Fairground Street at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Jose Guadalupe Zamora of Marietta was traveling northbound on Fairground Street by Lawrence Street in a 1996 Honda Civic when he crossed over the double yellow line and into the path of a 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche, driven by Acie James Farrey, 31, of Morrow. Farrey’s Chevrolet struck the Honda, causing it to spin into the path of a 2012 Ford E350 cutaway van, a Cobb School District maintenance van driven by Danny Roark, 53, of Acworth.

The school van struck the Honda before the Honda came to a stop, police said.

Zamora, the driver of the Honda; Roark, the driver of the school van; and Roark’s passenger, Joe Carver, 52, of Dallas, were transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital.

Zamora was listed in critical condition Wednesday night. Roark and Carver were listed in stable condition. Farrey, the driver of the Chevrolet, was unharmed.

Anyone with information on this crash is asked to contact Officer David Auld at (770) 794-5352.

This guy's name sounds "unAmerican" and any man in a civic MUST be gay, so watch out for D.A. King and the Westboro Baptist Church picketing (for bigger government) at this guy's funeral!!

You would think D.A. King would be threatening to blow up a Verizon store. after all, cell phones contribute to more crashes per DAY than do illegal immigrants per YEAR! But no, he just runs his mouth about how the Mexicans are ruining america.

Anyhow I hope the convenience of everyone using cars for everything was worth it to those involved. I sure appreciate them going to the hospital since their injuries server the greater purpose for socitey of our being able to drive EVERYWHERE for any or no reason at all. YAY!

^^^^

This man is my friend Sir and I am unafraid to use my real name. Notice that I use the word "is" because he is very much alive. The officer that reported the accident said it was a miracle that he came out of the accident in the condition he is in. He is fully conscious and has no brain or spinal damage. He isn't gay and was born her in the US. He is an example of God's grace and miracles
