He was transported to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in critical condition after the Dec. 20 crash.

A 71-year-old Acworth man who was injured in a Dec. 20 accident on Dallas Acworth Highway at Bridgemont Place has died.

The Cobb County Police Department was notified Friday that Ronald L. Gibson passed away, Sgt. Dana Pierce, the spokesman for the agency, said in a statement this evening. 

According to investigators and witnesses, Gibson was driving east on Dallas Acworth Highway when his blue 2005 Honda Element crossed the double yellow line and struck a gray 2011 Chevrolet Silverado head-on, Pierce said.

The driver of the Chevrolet, 39-year-old Michael Travelstead of Acworth, was transported to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital with non-life threatening injuries after the collision.

No charges are expected to be filed in the case, Pierce said.
