Killed was Melissa Broome, 20, of 135 Oak Hill Drive, said Cpl. Jay Westmoreland, Georgia State Patrol, Cedartown.
The wreck remained under investigation Thursday afternoon. However, Westmoreland said the preliminary report indicates Broome lost control of her vehicle while coming down Vinson Mountain Road.
Rockmart-area drivers know this road as one that is potentially dangerous, with a steep downhill grade, sharp drop-offs and blind curves.
The accident occurred at 12:01 p.m.
Westmoreland said Broome was northbound in her 2003 Ford Mustang, near the bottom of the hill. Driving through a curve, she reportedly lost control of her car and veered into the southbound, uphill lane of traffic, he said.
Broomes car passed into the path of a 1996 Plymouth Voyager driven by Brenda Bowman, of Rockmart. Broomes car was struck in the passenger side door by Bowmans minivan.
Both vehicles came to rest on the west shoulder of the road.
Upon arrival, emergency personnel found Broome to be fatally injured and were unable to resuscitate her.
Bowman was transported to Floyd Medical Center by Polk County EMS. Information on her condition was not immediately available.
