Acworth Teen Dies in Crash

An Acworth teenager has died after a two-vehicle accident late Monday evening in Northeast Cobb. 

Cobb Police Spokesman Officer Michael Bowman said that Laquan Hilton, 17, of Acworth, died after sustaining injuries in a crash at the intersection of Piedmont Road and Bells Ferry Road, where Piedmont becomes Barrett Parkway. 

The victim was a passenger in a 1990 Mazda Miata that collided with a 2006 Kia Sorrento shortly after 11 p.m. Monday, Bowman said. 

He said the Mazda, driven by Gabriel Hidalgo, 19, of Woodstock, was traveling westbound on Piedmont as it approached the intersection, then attempted a U-turn to the eastbound direction of Piedmont.

At that point, Bowman said, the passenger side of the Mazda where Hilton was seated was struck by the Kia, which was heading eastbound on Barrett Parkway and driven by Michael Williams, 26, of Marietta.

Both Hidalgo and Williams were transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital and are listed in stable condition, according to Bowman.

Bowman said charges are pending and that anyone with more information about the accident to call Cobb Police at 770-499-3987.
