COBB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A 35-year-old man was charged with homicide by vehicle after a crash in Cobb County Friday.

The crash occurred just before 3 p.m. on the northbound lanes of I-75 at Windy Hill Road.

A spokesperson with Georgia State Patrol says Mark Burkhalter, of Ellenwood, made an improper lane change, which caused the chain-reaction crash involving four vehicles.

One of the drivers in the crash died as a result of his injuries, according to the spokesperson, although his name was not immediately released.

In addition to homicide by vehicle, police say Burkhalter was also charged with improper lane change and failure to change his address within 60 days.

He was taken to the Cobb County Jail.
