No charges expected in bicyclist’s death in Marietta

No criminal charges are expected to be filed against the two drivers accused of striking and killing a bicyclist in Marietta, police said Tuesday night.

Danny Nation, 49, of Marietta, was struck around 8:30 p.m. Monday as he rode his bike northbound on Powder Springs Road, according to Officer David Baldwin with Marietta police. Investigators believe Nation attempted to cross the northbound lanes and was struck by both a 1994 Cadillac and a 1998 Mitsubishi 3000.

Both drivers stopped after the wreck, called 911 and attempted to render aid to Nation, who died at the scene, Baldwin said.

Although Nation’s bike had a headlight, the area where he was crossing was dark and he was not wearing reflective clothing, according to police.

The crash remains under investigation, but police do not expect to file charges. Anyone with information on the crash is asked to contact Officer Geoff Culpepper at 770-794-5357.
