Restaurant Owner, Chef Tragically Killed in Car Accident in Atlanta, Georgia
ATLANTA, GA. – According to an online news report posted at wrcbtv.com, a restaurant owner and chef was tragically killed in a car accident that occurred in Atlanta, Georgia. Investigators believe a tire failure caused the accident, which also injured another person in the vehicle, according to the report.*
The accident happened on Interstate 75 outside of Atlanta. Georgia State Patrol and WRCB report that a man and wife from Chattanooga, Tennessee, had traveled into Atlanta and were on the way back to Chattanooga, when their vehicle experienced a tire issue. It is not clear what caused the tire failure, but the issue caused the man driving the car to lose control.
WRCB reports the car then crashed, and the driver was ejected from the vehicle. WRCB further reports that the driver tragically died of his injuries. His wife, the sole passenger in the car, was injured, according to WRCB, but her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The victim was reportedly a co-owner and chef at Mrs. B’s Reggae Café in Chattanooga. He and his wife had been in Atlanta picking up supplies for the restaurant before the crash happened. Family, friends, and customers of the restaurant are mourning the loss and remembering the victim as a talented and joyful person.
“This man was an absolute joy to be around,” said one man who regularly dined at the victim’s restaurant. “Truly inspirational on a level I rarely, rarely encountered. Chef if probably one of the most passionate and dedicated people I’ve ever seen towards any craft.”
The doors to the café are closed for now, and members of the community have been leaving flowers, cards, and mementos in honor of the chef they loved.
