A man lost his life in a traffic accident after the car he traveled in crashed in Roswell while fleeing police. The crash in Roswell happened early Sunday morning, September 12th. Speed and reckless driving appeared to have played a role in the occurrence.
According to a news report, the Roswell Police Department said the crash in Roswell took place shortly after midnight in the area of Holcomb Bridge Road and Scott Road. The department said they were tipped off by the Alpharetta Police Department about vehicles traveling together and engaging in reckless driving behavior.
Shortly after the tipoff, a Roswell police officer sighted the group on Holcomb Bridge Road and saw an Infiniti G37 laying drag. The officer tried to stop the car, but the vehicle fled and continued eastbound at a high rate of speed.
The officer stopped the pursuit at the area of Holcomb Bridge Road and Calibre Creek Parkway. The accident happened shortly after, about a mile down the road. When the police got to the crash site, they found a man and woman on the roadway; they were ejected from the car.
Medics took the two to the hospital, where the man died from his injuries. The police will release his identity after notifying the next of kin. The investigators said it’s unclear if the victim was the driver or a passenger in the vehicle. They described the woman’s injuries as life-threatening, but her condition was unknown at the report time.
The police added that two people were seen exiting the crashed car “under their own power” before entering another vehicle that fled the scene. The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information should contact the Roswell PD.
