Investigation into the accident is underway by the Cobb County Police Department’s Selected Traffic Enforcement Unit at the request of chief Joseph Bennett.

It still remains unclear if the driver of the semi-truck suffered any injuries. It is also unknown why the vehicle lost control while turning at the intersection before flipping onto the cop car. It is speculated that a white van crossing the intersection at the same time might have caused the truck to roll over onto its side.
