Because I am a lawyer who helps people with Acworth car accident lawsuits,
I try to follow statistics about some of the very serious crashes in Acworth
and around the state. I really appreciate City-Data.com, because it compiles
a great deal of useful information about fatal car wrecks in Acworth and
in a number of the larger cities around Georgia.
According to the data about Acworth provided by
City-Data.com, virtually every year one or more people tragically lose their lives on

Sometimes the information shows where the wreck occurred, and sometimes
it does not. Clearly, though, more people are killed in car accidents
on Cobb Parkway/U.S. 41/SR 3 than on any other single road in Acworth:
nine people have lost their lives on the stretch of Cobb Parkway that
runs through Acworth.

1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994. It may be that
no deaths are listed because not one fatal car crash occurred in Acworth

this period is simply missing.
