Just days after an investigative report into whether Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed may be breaking the law while traveling within the city, a report was discovered revealing that his vehicle was involved in an accident.
The report of the accident was discovered just a few days after Channel 2 Action News investigative reports delved into the mayor’s trips in a city-provided SUV. Often, the SUV has sirens blaring and lights flashing.
There are some who believe that this practice may be in clear violation of Georgia statute regarding the use of lights and sirens.
The accident report, which was made on September 9th, reveals that Kasim’s SUV was being driven at the intersection of Paces Ferry Road and Cumberland Parkway. The sirens and lights on the SUV were going when it hit a vehicle in the intersection, causing it to spin.
The driver of the other vehicle was taken to hospital by ambulance and was injured.
Channel 2 received two reports regarding the accident – one from Cobb County Police and one from Atlanta Police.
The report from the Atlanta Police Department did not reveal that Mohammed Kasim Reed was a passenger in the SUV at the time of the accident. The Cobb County Police report listed Reed as a passenger.
Lori Geary for Channel 2 asked Atlanta Police Chief George Turner about the accident. He said that he did not know why Reed’s name was not listed in the Atlanta Police Department’s report.
