An arrest warrant has been issued for the man who was riding in an ATV on the Silver Comet Trail with 52-year-old Elizabeth "Betsy" Neesley when the vehicle collided with a pole and burned on June 30. Neesley, who lived in Austell, was ejected from the vehicle and died as a result.
Randall P. Gianisiracusa, 52 of Austell, was the other occupant of the ATV. He sustained minor injuries as a result of the crash, which occurred east of Floyd Road.
He was treated at the scene and then released.
Now, Cobb police have charged Gianisiracusa with involuntary manslaughter, reckless conduct and criminal trespass.
Thoughts from a Trip to a Georgia DMV
Why should you have to hate going to the DMV? Why should you concede that before you go, there’s a good chance there will be long lines, and when you get to the front, you might not have what the law requires to get your driver’s license?
I lost my license a couple weeks ago (I’m very, very lucky my head, feet and fingers are attached). My first step was to call the Georgia Department of Driver Services to see what I would need to bring in; the two people I talked to told me different things.
This confusion seemed to stem from the July 1 law change in renewing or reinstating Georgia driver’s licenses. In most general cases, drivers must take care of things in person instead of online and must present a form of ID, proof of Social Security number, and two papers proving address.
