Georgia wreck kills 1, injures 3

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Cobb County police say a 19-year-old is dead and three other people are injured as a result of a one-vehicle accident on a freeway ramp.

Police Sgt. Dana Pierce says the crash happened just after 2 a.m. Friday on the ramp from I-575 southbound to Chastain Road.

Pierce says the car cut across the ramp and went down an embankment.

He identified the passenger killed as 19-year-old Lawrence Ogunnowo of Lawrenceville.

Pierce says the three survivors, all in their early 20s, were taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital for treatment of injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.

The ramp was closed for several hours but has reopened.
