A U.S. Marine who had just returned from Iraq was killed by a wrong-way driver.
On Saturday, March 13, Lance Corporal Gregory M. Suedmeyer was heading home to Huntsville, Alabama after a tour of duty in Iraq. He was driving a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage westbound on Interstate 20 near Six Flags. At about 5 p.m., he was hit by 2008 Chevy Silverado that was headed east in the westbound lane.
The Silverado was driven by 71-year-old Bruce Joseph Quayle of Villa Rica. Quayle had been driving on the wrong side of the interstate for at least a mile and police had received numerous phone calls about a wrong-way driver at I-20 and Lee Road.
Rescue workers responded to the scene of the car accident.  Gregory Suedmeyer was taken to grady Medical Center where he died approximately two hours after the accident. His wife and passenger, 19-year-old Katelyn Suedmeyer, was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center. She is in critical, but stable condition.  
A dog in the car died at the scene of the accident.
Quayle was also transported to Grady Memorial Hospital. He remains in stable condition. Police are investigating the accident and expect to file charges against Quayle.
The Shane Smith Law would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family.
