Investigators said 22-year-old Dorian Robert Stevens, of Marietta, was traveling southbound on his bike on Franklin Road at 6:34 a.m. when he tried to cross the intersection. They said his bicycle crossed into the lane of Patrice Jeter, 54, of Woodstock, who was driving a 2005 Infiniti FX 35. Police say Jeter’s car struck both Stevens and the bicycle, prompting a closure of both southbound lanes of Cobb Parkway while authorities worked the scene of the collision. They have since been reopened.
Both were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, and Jeter is listed in stable condition.
The crash is under investigation, and any charges are still pending.
Anyone with information regarding the crash is asked to call Sgt. Brian Honea at (770) 794-5344.
