Failure to Stop at Sign Causes Accident (Cobb)

On June 22nd, 2024, Lafrance Joseph and Juanita Lawton were involved in an accident on Hiram Lithia Springs Rd and Brown Rd.

Joseph was traveling eastbound on Brown Rd while Lawton was traveling southbound on Hiram Lithia Springs Rd, approaching Brown Rd. Joseph stated that he initially did not see Lawton's vehicle and when he eventually did it was traveling too fast, so he attempted to accelerate to avoid a collision. Lawton stated that Joseph pulled out in front of her vehicle, and she swerved to avoid a collision. The front right of Lawton's car collided into the left side of Josephs car. The impact redirected Joseph southeast where the vehicle exited the roadway and drove over a mailbox. Both vehicles sustained disabling damage and were towed from the scene.

Joseph was found at fault and was cited with a stop sign violation and violation of class CP license restrictions.
