Cobb County police say a man is facing charges after being involved in a four-vehicle crash that injured another person on November 1.

Investigators reported that a white Chrysler 300 was going north on South Cobb Drive near Cranfill Road when it hit a white Dodge Caravan at 6:47 p.m. The Chrysler went into the southbound lanes of South Cobb and turned the Dodge in a northerly direction.

The Chrysler continued going northeast where it struck a grey Toyota Corolla that was traveling south. It then hit a curb and turned over, striking a parked Infiniti G35 in the process. No one was in the Infiniti.

The drivers of the Chrysler, the Dodge, and the Corolla, as well as a passenger in the Corolla were all taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital for treatment.

Police said the driver of the Dodge Caravan, 57-year-old Michael Collins of Sandy Springs, was ejected from his vehicle and he suffered life-threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, 58-year-old Gerald Padovano who was driving the Chrysler was later charged with serious injury by vehicle, reckless driving, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The driver of the Toyota Corolla, 45-year-old Tamarkys Troncoso and front-seat passenger 49-year-old Jose Guerrero, both of Marietta, sustained injuries that were not life-threatening.

The four-vehicle crash remains under investigation and anyone who has information has been asked to call investigators at 770-499-3987.

Cobb County police are also investigating the death of a 76-year-old woman.

Joan Christine Migneault died on Sunday night after she crashed her moped into a concrete median last Wednesday.

Migneault left the south Cobb Walmart on the East-West Connector and collided with the barrier as she headed east close to Auldyn Drive.
