Hit and Run Driver Sought For Deadly Motorcycle Accident

Comments Off

Cobb County Police are looking for the driver and vehicle involved in a fatal hit-and-run motorcycle accident on I-75 Saturday that claimed the life of Emanuel R. Mitchell, 31, of Norcross.

The vehicle involved in the accident is a gray or silver 1986 to 1991 model year Porsche 944 [view photo]. Police say the vehicle may have damage to its left front from the collision.

Mitchell was thrown from his Kawasaki Vulcan motorcycle Saturday evening when the driver of the Porsche moved into his lane causing a collision, police said. A second driver, Sonni Smith, 23, of Atlanta, told police her vehicle struck Mitchell after the driver of the Porsche made initial contact with his motorcycle. He died at the scene, according to a police spokeswoman.

Smith will not be charged.

Evidence recovered at the crash scene helped investigators to determine the make of the car with the assistance of the manufacturer.

Police are still searching for the driver of the Porsche. Anyone who has any information regarding the accident is urged to contact Cobb County police at 770-499-3987.
