The accident occurred in the eastbound lanes of McGinnis Ferry Road just before the bridge that crosses over the Chattahoochee River.

Witnesses say the suspect was driving a dark four-door sedan that could possibly be a BMW. Police say it should have damage to the front bumper, hood, front windshield and possible minor damage to the passenger side door.
