The wreck took place at about 3 p.m. when, according to Officer David Baldwin with Marietta police, the moving truck failed to maintain its lane and crossed into the path of a car traveling in the same direction. The collision forced the car out of its lane and into a utility vehicle parked in a turn lane.
Baldwin said the force of the crash caused both the moving truck and the utility vehicle, which was owned by a private contractor, to flip over. He also said two power poles snapped and spread live electrical wires over the road.
Those wires trapped the driver of the moving truck in his vehicle when officers first arrived, Baldwin said, and all lanes were initially closed in both directions.
Nobody was killed, Baldwin said, but the drivers of both trucks were transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the car was treated at the scene and released. There were no other passengers in any of the cars, Baldwin said. Nobody in the wreck has been identified.
One lane of Powder Springs Road near Booth Road was expected to remain closed overnight so utility workers could set up new power poles and restring power lines. Baldwin did not know if the construction would last into rush hour this morning.
