On May 20, 2009, James Bush of Smyrna, Georgia lost his life when the big rig he was driving side-swiped another 18 wheeler near mile marker 158 in Interstate 20. Mr. Bush worked for the Pepsi Cola Company and was driving westbound on I-20 when he came upon Kenneth Woodfork of Doraville, Georgia, whose truck had broken down in the emergency lane. Unfortunately, Mr. Bush hit the disabled truck and lost control of his vehicle which veered off a steep embankment and then crashed into a stand of trees. It was later determined that Mr. Bush was not wearing his seatbelt and suffered extreme blunt force trauma to his head causing his death. Fortunately Mr. Woodfork only suffered minor injuries.
