Crashed car burning at night.
A Friday fight near the Lindbergh MARTA Station in Atlanta resulted in a car accident that caused injuries to two people and left about 1,100 customers in the area without power. The incident was caught on the dash camera from a nearby Uber car. The Uber driver said he witnessed four people get into what appeared to be a physical confrontation. These individuals then got into a vehicle and started racing toward the interstate, according to a report from CBS46. However, the driver of the vehicle quickly lost control, crashing into a power pole on Lindbergh Drive near Armand Road NE. At least two people were injured and taken to the hospital. The investigation into the incident is ongoing. According to the MARTA Guide, the region’s public transportation system is one of the safest in the country. However, crimes such as physical assault do occur at or near these stations. Lindbergh Station has seen a steady increase in the number of crimes committed there over the past five years. It currently has the second-highest crime rate of all MARTA Stations, coming in behind only Five Points. Individuals injured as a result of reckless or even deliberate actions can seek compensation for the expenses and impacts of their injury through a personal injury claim. Not only is the individual responsible for causing the injury potentially liable, but depending on the circumstances MARTA can be found liable as well, if a crime occurred on their property and the carrier knew or had reason to know that criminal actions were likely and did not take measures to protect their customers from the crime.
