“From what witnesses were saying the red BMW driver had lost control of the vehicle and when he was trying to regain control, he collided into the rear end of the grey Infiniti,” said Marietta police spokesperson Brittany Wallace.

Another car, an Infiniti, ended up in a ditch nearby. The driver, 28-year-old Nicholas Boyett, was taken to Kennestone Hospital where he was later released.

It took several house for the lanes to reopen.
