Marietta wreck claims life of teen

A teenager who was a passenger in a car died Friday after sustaining injuries from a crash which occurred on an icy road in Marietta.

According to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on, Alexandra Covett, 17, of Acworth lost control of her Mitsubishi Eclipse on a patch of ice on Stilesboro Road in Marietta and hit a 2007 Hyundai Sonata driven by Courtney Ferguson, 30, also of Acworth said Joe Hernandez, a Cobb County police spokesperson.

18-year-old Karli Jobling, of Kennesaw, a passenger in Covett’s car, was seriously injured in the accident and passed away later at a nearby hospital according to Hernandez. Neither Ferguson nor Covett suffered serious injuries.

What is unclear is if the speed in combination of the icy roads were the factors. At this time investigators are still looking for anyone who may have additional information on this claim. If you have any information please contact the Cobb County Police Department.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all involved in this terrible accident.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
