Georgia Bus Driver Charged in Fatal Bartow County Bicycle Crash

By Grant Law Office on December 7, 2012

A Paulding County pastor was killed in an Atlanta traffic accident when a county bus struck his bicycle. According to a news report in The Associated Press, the fatal bus accident occurred along U.S. 41 in Bartow County. Officials say the bicyclist was in critical condition and later died at a hospital in Marietta. The 77-year-old driver of the charter bus faces charges of vehicular homicide and following too closely.

It is crucial for all Georgia motorists to leave enough space between their vehicle and the vehicles in front of them. According to Georgia Statute 40-6-49: “The driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicles and the traffic upon and the condition of the highway.” Motorists who are distracted, inattentive, fatigued, or impaired also tend to cause serious injury rear-end accidents.

Anyone who has lost a loved one in a Georgia bicycle accident should discuss his or her legal rights and options with an experienced personal injury lawyer. It may be possible to hold the at-fault party accountable for the crash. In cases involving negligence or wrongdoing, financial compensation may be available for medical bills, hospitalization fees, funeral expenses, lost future wages, loss of companionship, and other related damages.
