The DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s Office said the man killed early Monday in a crash with a MARTA bus was 26-year-old Robert Boyd Jr.

The Decatur man was traveling on Clifton Springs Road near Pine Hill Road shortly after 1 a.m. when his car crossed the center line and crashed into the bus head-on, said MARTA spokeswoman Stephany Fisher. 

The driver was pronounced dead at 1:33 a.m., Fisher said. 

“The MARTA employee involved, the bus driver, was not injured and the sole passenger had minor injuries that were treated on scene,” she said.
