A fatal collision between a bicyclist and a car took the life of a beloved and devoted family man. Atlanta firefighter, Sgt Frank Guinn, was fatally injured while training for an Ironman competition. Guinn leaves behind a wife, three daughters and countless brothers and sisters from the Atlanta Fire Rescue.
The fatal accident occurred this past Friday on Chef Menteur Highway. Guinn and two others were cycling eastbound when a white Chevy Cruz struck the riders from behind. Guinn was killed and another cyclist was seriously injured. The group had traveled to New Orleans to compete in the Ochsner Ironman. The Ironman consists of a 1.2-mile swim, a 56- mile bike ride and 13.1- mile run. Instead of competing, Guinn's wife is traveling to New Orleans to recover his body. Officials waited to release his name until his wife could be properly notified.
