A 17 year old boy is in critical condition after a crash that also injured the grandchildren of gubernatorial candidate Roy Barnes. The teen, who was driving a Porsche Boxster, apparently swerved into oncoming traffic. Cobb Police say he hit a minivan carrying the former governor’s daughter, Allison Barnes Salter, and her two children. The crash happened Sunday afternoon on Old Mountain Road near Marietta.
Barnes’ two granddaughters, who are 4 and 7 years old, are both hospitalized, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Also hospitalized is a 16 year old, who was riding in the Porsche. Police believe the teens were speeding, but the investigation is ongoing.
