Irene Giannangelo, 72, of Powder Springs, was driving a white 2011 Ford Escape northbound on Mars Hill Road just south of Nichols Road when for unknown reasons she crossed over the double yellow lane lines into the southbound lane, colliding with a white 2006 Mazda MPV driven by Julia Rivera, 31, of Powder Springs, said Cobb Police Officer Mike Bowman.
Giannangelo was transported by ground ambulance to WellStar Kennestone Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Rivera was also taken to Kennestone and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Two of three juvenile passengers riding with Rivera were taken by ambulance to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite Hospital where they are being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The third juvenile passenger was not injured in the collision and was released to a family member on the scene.
The collision remains under investigation and no charges are expected to be filed, Bowman said.
