Man found guilty in crash that left other man with serious head injury


Howard Wright, 46, was found guilty by a Cobb County jury for seriously injuring another man in a 2019 car wreck. In 2019, Wright struck a 2015 Volkswagen Passat driven by John Nelson while making a left turn at Cooper Lake Road and South Cobb Drive in Smyrna.

 According to the Cobb District Attorney’s Office and Wright’s arrest warrant, he never saw Nelson approaching the intersection as he “accelerated at a high rate of speed” in his 2017 Dodge Challenger. Nelson received 40 staples to his head as a result of the accident and was left with memory loss, which has negatively impacted his normal daily activities.
