Governor’s intern killed in Atlanta drunk driving crash


Posted on Jun 21, 2010

A young man who worked as an intern in the office of Governor Perdue lost his life in a weekend car crash.
 
The DUI car crash occurred at about 4 a.m. on the morning of Saturday, June 19. Twenty-four-year-old Jordan Griner was returning to his apartment after driving three friends home from a party to celebrate the end of their six-month government fellowships. He was the designated driver and had not been drinking.
Twenty-six-year-old Christa Scott was returning home from her job at Door 44, a club on 12th Street in Midtown. She was driving a Mustang convertible and ran a red light on West Peachtree Street and then t-boned Griner’s car on 17th Street.  
 
Fire crews at to extricate Griner from the damaged car. He was pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital.
 
Scott had a blood alcohol level of .229 at the time of the accident. This is almost three times the legal limit. She is charged with first-degree vehicular homicide, driving under the influence and reckless driving. She posted bond and was released from the Fulton County Jail.
 
The Law Offices of Shane Smith offer the family of Jordan Griner our sincere condolences after this tragic accident.
