Mystery rider dies after 2 chases

A mystery rider on a stolen motorcycle twice led Fayette County law officers on chases from north Fayette into Clayton County Feb. 16 before he crashed into a vehicle in Riverdale and died of his injuries.

He remains nameless because he was carrying no identification, according to Fayette County Sheriff Barry Babb.

Babb said the first time a deputy tried to stop the sport bike motorcycle speeding and without a tag near the intersection of Ga. Highway 279 and Helmer Road.

“The driver sped away from the deputy on Helmer Road and entered Clayton County. Fayette County sheriff’s patrol supervisor terminated the pursuit as they entered Clayton County,” Babb said.

For reasons unknown, the driver of the motorcycle returned to Fayette County a short time later where deputies again attempted to stop the motorcycle at Ga. Highway 85 at Pavilion Parkway.

“As deputies pursued again, the driver sped back to Clayton County,” said Babb. “Fayette County patrol supervisors again terminated the pursuit before entering Clayton County.”

Babb said deputies later learned that the motorcycle was involved in a crash at Ga. Highway 85 and Webb Road in Riverdale.

Babb said Clayton County Police conducted a traffic investigation at the site of the crash and learned the motorcycle was stolen and the rider was dead at the scene.

Perfect Outcome......

These are icy sentiments for a man who died. Larceny now deserves death?

And their safety just might. He could have pulled over..I am glad he did not take out anyone innocent.

And where did he flee too?

How about assualt with a deadly weapon? There is still a small wooden cross on the side of the road over by SteinMart to remind us what can happen to innocent pedestrians when a jack-ass flees justice on a public road.

Never speak of the dead unless it is good. He was a criminal and he's dead by his own crime, and it is good. Crime doesn't pay and sometimes you pay the ultimate price for being a lazy scumbag. Hmmm and he fled back to the stunning naacp success story clayton county.

Cry me a river....... This piece of human debris has been disposed of and is no longer a perpetuator of crime in our community. Sorry dude...I support the victims and the productive class over larcenist, terrorist, murderers, Somalia pirates, and other subhuman predators......
