A Dallas woman, Trisha M. Miller, 38, was killed on Tuesday after a dump truck plowed into two cars in Cobb County. Another motorist, Louis R. Duckwall Jr., 56, of Marietta, was seriously injured in the same wreck.

According to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on, police say the dump truck driver, Jason Chatham, 34, of Powder Springs was not injured.

Investigators of the wreck report that the dump truck was traveling east on Dallas Hwy, west of the Sandtown Road intersection when the driver attempted to stop for a traffic light. He then ran through the light and into the left turn lane striking Miller’s Kia making a left onto Dallas Hwy. The dump truck and Miller’s car then hit Duckwall’s Nissan Sentra.

Duckwall and Miller were taken to Wellstar Kennestone, where Miller died.

  • 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.
