ATLANTA – One of the most common causes for road accidents are drivers who stay behind the wheels while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. DUI drivers have not changed this bad habit despite laws that are made stricter by Philly officials. The advice that alcohol and driving do not mixed has not been very effective. In big cities, especially, DUI is a very common traffic offense. Most of the time, offenders will leave the scene of the crime and surrender to the authorities at a much later date until the effect of alcohol in the blood has evaporated.
Just after 2:00 o’clock in the morning of Friday, police of Atlanta placed under arrest the operator of a vehicle after it crashed into Asylum NiteClub located at Flat Shoals Ave.
According to the police, the driver of the vehicle was Robby Manley.
The Police reported that there were some pedestrians standing at the doorway of the club when suddenly a rampaging vehicle emerged and hit two of them. Due to the impact, one of the persons standing at the entrance was pressed against the building. Police announced that none of the injuries were considered life-threatening.
An ambulance delivered two of the pedestrian victims to a nearby local hospital.
According to police, Manley was in panic; he got out of the vehicle right after the crash and tried to flee. He was apprehended a few blocks away and arrested.
Manley was presented with two charges: (1) DUI and hit-and-run.
The pedestrians who were standing at the entrance of the club were actually club employees doing their jobs as bouncers. They were just unlucky to be in this particular place where the errant car was going. That early Friday, two employees were hit and pressed against the wall of the Asylum Niteclub located at Flat Shoals Ave. The driver of the car lost control as it crashed into the edifice.
According to a reliable soured, the driver of the car, a Chevrolet 1967 Camaro that crashed into the building was bragging and doing a “burnout” at around 2:00 o’clock that morning when he lost control of the car and hit the front of the East Atlanta club.
The two pedestrians who were actually two of the club’s bouncers were standing at the entrance. When the car slammed into the building, they were pinned against the building, and were delivered to Memorial Hospital of Grady for treatment. There was no report of their condition.
According to Atlanta police spokesperson, Kim Jones, Robby Manley, the Camaro driver, ran away from the site on foot. The police eventually found him hiding nearby and arrested.
Manley was complaining of pain in his foot and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital Detention Unit. He was soon charged with the following: (1) DUI; (2) not giving aid; (3) not following the proper lane; and (4) hit-and-run.
