Drunk driver believed to be at fault in fatal crash

Many Georgia residents are aware of a recent auto accident that claimed the life of a well-known sculptor. The 53-year-old artist was recently commissioned to create a piece to honor the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., which would have been displayed on the grounds of the Georgia Capital. Upon early investigation, police believe that the fatal accident was the fault of a drunk driver, and charges have been made in the matter.

The sculptor was riding his motorcycle in Henry County on a recent Saturday when a pickup truck approached from the rear. It is unclear whether the artist saw the vehicle approach or had time to make any effort to avoid being struck in a rear-end collision. He was thrown from the bike and sustained traumatic brain injuries and skull fractures as a result.

He was rushed to an area hospital for emergency medical treatment, but the best efforts of the medical staff were unable to save his life. He was placed on life support for a period of time, but he was pronounced brain dead the evening following the accident. His family carried through on his wishes to act as an organ donor, and they are comforted in the knowledge that others will be helped as a result of this tragic loss.

The 20-year-old man who struck the Georgia sculptor has been charged with driving under the influence. The suspected drunk driver is also expected to be charged with vehicular homicide in the first degree. The family of the deceased will have the right to pursue a civil action against the man for wrongful death, should they decide to do so. At present, they are likely still trying to come to terms with their loss and find the best way to honor the life of their loved one.
