Cobb County, Florida – On Wednesday, a Florida motorist was charged with driving under the influence and vehicular homicide after he hit another car, swaying it off the road and resulting in fatal injuries which lead to the death of the driver.
The incident took place on Kennesaw Due West Road around 11pm. The deceased used to work for Kennesaw Mountain High School a short distance away from the incident.
Cobb County police spokesman Michael Bowman narrated the facts of the evening stating that investigators believed the 2008 Suzuki Forenza hit from behind a 2000 Saturn SW2 at a very high speed. The Saturn slid off the right side of the road, breaking through a fence down an embankment. The Suzuki came to a halt on the left side of the road. The 51 year old driver of the Saturn was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital where he could not survive his injuries and passed away.
John Steve Bryan had just left work and was on his way home when the accident led to his death. Two Wellington, Fla., men were injured in the Suzuki. They were brothers named Kelven Inman, 28 and the driver named Keven T. Inman, 29. Both the men were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital. The passenger of the Suzuki was also in a serious condition. The driver, after given treatment, was transported to the Cobb County jail where he was held without bail. His multiple charges included first degree vehicular homicide, DUI, Serious injury by vehicle, reckless driving and following too closely.
The news of the crash has left the community in shock. Bryan’s relatives are equally devastated by the news and hope the police take action against the Inman brothers and hold them responsible for Bryan’s death. Pat Bryan, Bryan’s sister-in-law, told Channel 2, “He loved doing his job, he was a wonderful daddy and a wonderful husband, and he just had a new grandbaby.” Pat hoped that people learn a lesson from this accident and hope them to be careful next time. “Just always remember, when you’re out on the roads, there’s a lot of people,” she said. “Even if it’s 12 or 1 o’clock at night, people are coming home, people with families, and he was going home to his family, and now he can’t.”
Kennesaw Mountain Principal Kevin Daniel stated in the school’s public address system “We lost a member of our Mustang family last night, we are all saddened by the news and the loss of such a great worker for us.” He told Channel 2 that Bryan “was just a great guy, a hard worker, always positive [and] upbeat, just a great, great gentleman who worked hard to make sure our facility was first class and ready for our students the next day.”
