Crash Hurts Kennesaw Driver, 4 Others

A 12-year-old girl was critically injured in the two-vehicle collision on Dallas Highway.

A 12-year-old girl was critically injured in a two-vehicle accident on Dallas Highway in West Cobb on Saturday afternoon.

The girl was in the back seat of a black 1990 Nissan Maxima driven by Joab Kunin, 63, of Kennesaw, said. Kunin tried to turn left from westbound Dallas Highway into the shopping center, across from Bob Cox Road, at 5:25 p.m.

But an orange 2005 Chevrolet Colorado, driven east on Dallas Highway by 23-year-old Jacqueline Waters of Powder Springs, hit the Maxima.

Kunin, Waters, and a front-seat passenger in the Maxima, Jacqueline Keaton, 51, of Atlanta, were taken to in Marietta with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The 12-year-old girl was flown to in Sandy Springs in critical condition, and an ambulance took a 10-year-old girl who also was in the back of the Maxima to Scottish Rite with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Cobb police Selective Traffic Enforcement Program unit is investigating the crash and expects to file charges.

Police ask anyone with information about the crash to call 770-499-3987.

My name is Nikki Fain. I am the owner of Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in The Village at Old Trace. We would like to offer free yogurt for a year to the two girls who were injured. My husband tried to talk to and comfort these sweet children until the paramedics got there. All of the injured are in our thoughts and prayers. If anyone knows how to get in contact with the girls... Please let them know to head to Menchie's for their free yogurt!
