Motorcyclist’s Fatal Crash in Downtown Atlanta Caused by Suspected Drunk Driver

Today, in the early morning hours, a fatal motorcycle crash occurred on I-75 northbound near the 17th street overpass. According to investigating officers, the motorcyclist was ejected and killed during the collision when his motorcycle was rear-ended by an SUV. The driver of the SUV was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide, reckless driving and DUI.

Our prayers go out to the family of the DUI victim and the driver that caused his death. There are going to be a lot of vehicles on the road this Memorial day weekend. More than 28 million Americans are going to be traveling our streets and highways this weekend. It is important to remember motorcycles are everywhere, look twice and share the road.

As a DUI victim’s lawyer, I urge everyone to have a good time this holiday weekend, but when it comes time to drive home call someone like Saferide America at 404-888-0887. SafeRide America is a non-profit organization that will drive you and your car home for less than the price of a taxi.
