Cobb County father with brain injury after collision able to walk again

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A Cobb County father who was hit by a car while riding his motorcycle is out of the hospital and recovering with his family.

Cameron Edwards suffered brain and spinal injuries when he was hit on Powers Ferry Road in Cobb County, last month.

Each step forward for Edwards is a reminder of how thankful he is to spend Thanksgiving Day with his family.

He spoke exclusively with Channel 2′s Cobb County Bureau Chief Michele Newell.

“I’m most thankful that I can hang with friends and family again,” said Edwards.

“I’m just blessed to still have him here,” said Maya Hawkins, Edwards’ fiancé.

Edwards was on his way home when the crash happened.

“I just would like to know, what was she thinking? When she decided to go in front of him, did she know what she was doing at that point?,” said Hawkins.

The crash happened weeks after Edwards proposed to Hawkins.

“I was scared. I was hoping he was going to make it through,” she said.

“I don’t remember anything,” said Edwards about the crash.


“It was really hard to see him like that and not being able to communicate with him at all,” said Hawkins.

He has a long road to recovery.

“Several brain injuries, head injuries, shoulder injury,” said Edwards about the challenges he’s facing.

Edwards said he will probably make a full recovery in six months, but he’s hoping he can get back to work much sooner.

The family said the driver of the car that hit him was charged.
