Just after 2:00 a.m. Friday, April 12, 2013, three pedestrians were injured by a vehicle that crashed into them. This Georgia pedestrian accident occurred outside of an East Atlanta club on Flat Shoals Avenue.
The initial report indicated that three pedestrians were walking outside the entrance to the Asylum nightclub and were hit by a moving motor vehicle. Later, it was discovered that two of the injured pedestrians were bouncers at the club. When they were hit, one of the three was pinned against the building by the car.
Police indicated that two of the injured victims suffered leg injuries and were taken to a local hospital for medical care, and one victim was treated at the accident scene and released. Officers reported that none of the injuries that the victims sustained were believed to be life-threatening.
Upon impact, the driver tried to flee the scene. He fled on foot; however, police caught up to him about one block away and arrested him. He was identified as Robby Manley and he was charged with a DUI and hit-and-run. Manley suffered a foot injury in the crash and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment before he was taken to the Atlanta City Jail.
According to what Police Sgt. Brian Wilkins told 11Alive News, “Robby Manley was spinning his wheels and doing tricks in the street when he lost control and sped onto the sidewalk.” It appears that he was doing burnouts in his ’67 Camaro.
Although the names of the victims have not been released, Shane Smith Law would like to wish the Atlanta, Georgia drunk driving victims a full and fast recovery.
