Chef Marc Wegman, Solano’s boss at the Roswell restaurant, told Channel 2 Action News Solano is still in the hospital, recovering from his injuries.
“El Fuego is doing much, much better,” Wegman said. “He’s sitting up and he is walking with a walker, kind of learning how to walk again basically.”
Roswell police said Fitzsimons was heading southbound, when she passed through the intersection at Woodstock Street and changed lanes. That’s when she saw the MARTA bus stopping to pick up passengers, police said.
She swerved to avoid hitting the back of the bus, drove onto the sidewalk and struck three people. The car stopped after hitting a telephone pole.
In addition to two counts of homicide by vehicle, Fitzsimons faces a second degree charge of failure to use care to avoid a collision, failure to maintain lane and improper lane change.
A judge issued a $15,000 bond.
