Drivers across Atlanta generally do not expect that a drive home from work or a quick trip to the grocery store could end with a serious accident. But many motorists in the area were caught off guard recently when snow and ice turned some Georgia roads into skating rinks. Drivers in many southern states are not accustomed to driving in these types of conditions, so it is not all that surprising that a number of people were involved in serious car accidents recently.

A 55-year-old bicyclist was hit by a vehicle on Sunday, March 30 around 7:43 p.m. in Marietta, Georgia. The Atlanta suburb accident killed the bike rider even though he was transported to Kennestone Hospital for treatment. The driver who struck him has not been located. Police are looking for what they believe to be a black SUV that was captured on outdoor surveillance videos in the hopes that they can speak with the driver about what occurred. According to law enforcement officials, the accident unfolded right after the driver left the NCG cinema. The driver was seen exiting the facility after viewing the film "Croods," and the police said that the individual was accompanied by two children. Using movie theater security cameras, the police were able to capture images of the trio, which they later released in the hopes that someone would come forward. Officials have not released the identity of the deceased or made a statement about whether the SUV driver will be charged with negligence or any other crimes.
