A student from Georgia State University was killed early on Wednesday after his car crashed into an Ice cream shop at downtown Atlanta.
The incident occurred at about 2 in the morning at the Häagen-Dazs located in the Upper Alabama Street near the entrance to the Underground Atlanta.
Atlanta Police Department Captain Adam Lee said that a police officer working at a nearby precinct at Underground Atlanta had heard a loud crashing noise.
According to Lee, the officer came over to investigate the scene and saw the vehicle that was literally inside of the Haagen-Dazs ice cream shop.
A man in the driver’s seat sustained life threatening injuries.
According to Lee, witnesses had told them that the driver of the vehicle was traveling at a very high rate of speed and it appears that there was a moment wherein the driver lost control of the vehicle which made him jump over the curb.
The vehicle, a silver Infiniti, had apparently flown up in the air and the crashed sideways through the front of the shop.
According to the Haagen-Dazs shop owner, it is estimated that the repair could take weeks, which means that he’ll have to close down the shop during the busiest part of the tourist season.
The driver of the vehicle succumbed to death on the way to Graduate Memorial Hospital, according to the police. The victim was identified by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office to be 21-year-old Timothy Nixon of Atlanta. According to Lee, Nixon was a student of Georgia State University.
