Eight People Sent to the Georgia Hospital after Accident involving Motorcycles

1 comment

Northbound I-75 in Henry County, Georgia was closed for about two hours this past Sunday after an accident occurred after 1 p.m., according to Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC).

The accident involved three cars and six motorcycles. According to Henry County Police Capt. Jason Bolton, there were no life-threatening injuries.

The amount of vehicles involved was large because a chain reaction was created from the vehicles following too closely.

Apparently, the bikers came from the National Bikers Roundup at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

According to AJC, another motorcycle accident occurred this past Sunday as well as the one above. It happened on Sunday afternoon on I-85 in Franklin County near Georgia-South Carolina border.

    The majority of accidents occurring in the Atlanta area during the Roundup Bike Fest were caused by irresponsible, careless, idiotic motorists following to close to the cyclists.

    However, in one instance I believe it was a case of rage, evilness, malice, jealousy and drunkeness when that 18 year old rear-ended, mowed down the cyclist and his passenger on Riverdale Rd. I hope he gets “the book” thrown at him and spends years in the pen.

    I would like to attend his trial, and if the judge says if there is anyone here who would like to say something, I will raise my hand and say: “Yes Judge. May I say anything?” Judge responds with: “No profanity!”

    “Oh thank you, Your Honor.” Then, I would turn to that cowardly menace and say: “YOU DOG!”
