Child Struck, Killed in Cobb County

SMYRNA, Ga. (AP) -- Cobb County police say a child has been struck and killed while trying to cross a busy road before dawn with a woman and three other children.

Smyrna Police spokesman Michael Smith says the woman and the three other children were taken to a hospital with what he calls "superficial" wounds.

Smith says the five were hit before 6:30 a.m. Monday while crossing the five-lane South Cobb Drive.

The ages of the children were not immediately available.

The accident happened near a Cobb County Transit bus stop, but Smith does not know if the family had just gotten off a bus or was headed to the bus stop. He says the driver of the vehicle who hit the five stopped and called 911.

Police have not released the name of the child who was killed.

The road was shut down in both directions for more than an hour after the accident.
