A fatality crash occurred on I-75 southbound, just south of the Hickory Grove Road overpass in Kennesaw Saturday morning.
The driver of a white 2003 Chevrolet Silverado truck was towing a utility trailer loaded with farm equipment southbound on I-75 in the slow lane of traffic, according to Cobb Police Public Information Officer Dana Pierce.
The driver of a silver 2002 Ford Explorer was traveling southbound in the lane next to the Chevrolet. The driver of the Ford failed to maintain her lane and sideswiped the Chevrolet truck causing it to veer off the eastern edge of the roadway where it overturned in the center median, Pierce said in a press release.
The driver of the Chevrolet has been identified as James A. McNeece, 50, of Ringgold. McNeece was transported by air ambulance to Grady Hospital in critical condition. His wife and front seat passenger, Reba A McNeece, 45, was deceased at the scene.
The driver of the Ford has been identified as Diana M. Stepp, 47, of Satellite Beach, Florida. She was arrested at the scene and was taken to the Cobb County Adult Detention Center where she has been charged with 2nd Degree Vehicular Homicide and Failure to Maintain Lane.
