MABLETON, Ga. -- Cobb County police are investigating a vehicle collision that killed one man Friday morning. 

The accident happened on Veterans Memorial Highway at the intersection of Kitchens Road in Mableton. Shortly after, 52-year-old Gary Henderson of Lithia Springs died at Wellstar South Cobb Hospital, where he was taken after the crash.
