Anyone in the Atlanta area that observes a RV with damage to right front that looks recent, notify the Police.

They have the License Number so should be able to find it and determine who was driving .

"The recreational vehicle is described as a white and green 1999 Spartan Alpine, with Florida plates BZR-W69. The RV may be pulling motorcycles on a trailer, with Canadian tags, police said."

Hopefully they will turn themselves in.

A Prius owner not wearing a seatbelt, I'm not surprised he was killed.

Florida plates on RV plus Canadian tags on motorcycle trailer adds up to Canadian Snowbird in my book.

Hope the Boys at The Border are on the lookout!

The passenger, not wearing a belt, was partially ejected and killed.

If he's a snowbird, he's likely heading down to Florida, not returning up here.

In addition, if he's keeping Florida tags on the MH, I doubt he's crossing the border up here with it. Probably storing it somewhere in the northern states on the way back and riding the bikes across the border back home.

Seems to me like he'd have a pretty good reason to be streaking for Canada right now, regardless of any plans he had before the hit-and-run. But if you're right about the moho: chances are that motorcycle trailer is hitched to a Canada-plated vehicle by now.

Still, if they have a tag, they have a name and address.

I know a couple people who are alive today because they were not wearing their seat belts. One was ejected and ended up landing on the seat which was also ejected. If he and the seat had been ejected, he would have been cut in half by the seat belt. Another guy would have been decapitated by his windshield. I wear mine, but it makes me wonder whose odds are better, cause I know of many cases where the seat belt wearers were killed.


this kind of nonsense keeps popping up. my idiot kids said the same thing, they didn't want to be trapped in the car, etc. I would guess that 95% of the time you are much better off strapped in. if you want to take that 5% chance so be it. I get amused when I read about a death and they mention that the deceased was thrown out of the car.
when I worked in Cincinnati years back our office was on a corner that was accident prone. time and time again people, usually women, would come into the office after being involved in an accident and be somewhat banged up. I always made it a point to suggest that they sue the seat belt manufacturer as it obviously was defected. that shut them up really quick.
as I say one advantage to folks not wearing a seat belt is it helps thinning out the gene pool.

I am alive today because of seat/shoulder belts.
