AUSTELL, Ga. -- Cobb County Police are investigating an ATV crash on the Silver Comet Trail that took the life of an Austell woman.
The wreck happened just after midnight Saturday. Police said 52-year-old Elizabeth Neesley was pronounced dead at the scene after her ATV struck a metal post. The ATV caught fire and burned on impact.
The post was placed in the middle of the path to keep motorized vehicles off the trail, according to police.
Randall Gianisiracusa, 52, of Austell, was also on the ATV. He was treated for minor injuries at the scene and released.
Police said it is not clear who was driving the vehicle when it crashed, but they believe alcohol may have played a role.
