A July 29 traffic accident at the intersection of Ga. highways 54 and 34 in east Coweta County claimed the life of a Newnan couple. That’s in front of a busy movie theater parking lot.
Thomas Mayo, 58, and Pamela Mayo, 57 died at the scene, according to Ga. State Patrol Sgt. Mike Adcock.
The report by Ga. State Patrol Trooper Sgt. Katie Thompson said an Infiniti driven by a 28-year-old Acworth resident Andrew Wiemann was traveling westbound in the left lane of Hwy. 54 shortly before 9 p.m.
Wiemann approached the intersection while a Ford Escape was traveling eastbound on Hwy. 34 and attempting to make a left turn into the NCG Cinemas parking lot.
Thompson said the Infiniti traveled through the red light and struck the passenger side of the Escape, resulting in the Escape traveling off the north side of the roadway.
The Infiniti continued to travel west, coming to a stop in the right lane then becoming engulfed in flames, the report said.
Wiemann survived the collision and fire but his current condition was not given.
