An Alpharetta teenager is recovering after a violent car crash just feet from a state senator’s house.
Police said James Cobb II, 17, lost control of his car on Mid Broadwell Road Dec. 21, then crashed into a brick wall outside of the Brierfield Subdivision.
“We heard a loud noise, ‘boom,’” said Sen. Brandon Beach, whose home sits just on the other side of the wall. “I thought a transformer blew or something.”
Beach told Channel 2′s Mike Petchenik his son looked out the window and saw Cobb’s Mercedes in flames.
