According to Stafford, a Grady Hospital ambulance was already at the scene assessing the patient, who was alert and conscious, but injured. Firefighters extinguished the fire and assisted with cleanup. The injured man was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Stafford had no update on the condition of the motorcycle driver. According to the police report, the motorcycle driver sustained injuries to his legs, feet and left arm. According to Millsap, who reached out to the family of the injured man, he was to undergo surgery Tuesday.
“I reached out to the family because it is important that he is doing well,” Millsap told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I wanted to send my best wishes to him.”
Millsap said he was shaken by the incident.
“It’s tough,” Millsap said. “It’s good that I have family and friends around to support me and who are helping me through this process.”
