West GA Car Accident Fatality
It was a busy weekend for West Georgia law enforcement and other first responders to car crashes. Seven accidents that occurred from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning left eight dead, according to The Atlanta Journal Constitution. The first fatality occurred on I-75 in Whitfield County, when the teenage driver overcorrected after a tire blowout. Shortly after that, another fatality occurred in a Marietta crash, presumably caused by driver loss of control. Several injuries were also reported.
Before midnight, a multi-vehicle accident in the southbound lane of Interstate 285 between Camp Creek Parkway and Washington Road, involving two cars and three motorcycles killed two and injured another. Shortly after midnight, a bicyclist was struck from behind and killed on a Paulding County highway. By 1:30 am on Saturday morning, a sixth fatality occurred when a motorcyclist, reported to be driving in a reckless manner, clipped a wall on northbound GA 400, causing his passenger, his sister, to fall off. She was run over and killed by a passing motorist who fled the scene.
A teenage driver lost control of his vehicle in a 3 am accident in Coweta County, killing one passenger and injuring himself and three other passengers in a vehicle rollover. The final fatality for weekend crashes came at 8:30 am Saturday when improper lane change on I-285 near MLK Blvd. caused an SUV to flip over, killing the driver.
