Details were limited after a Tuesday afternoon crash involving a motorcycle

According to reports, the motorcyclist was transported by air ambulance after a crash about 1 p.m. along Mission Road in the area of Bramblewood subdivision.

The Georgia State Patrol said no information was available on the crash, and Bartow County Fire Department said the agency established a landing zone at Mission Road Elementary School but no other details were available.

The crash was the second in as many days involving life flight. On Monday afternoon, Richard Timan Bagwell, 37, of Kennesaw was airlifted to Erlanger for treatment after the tractor-trailer he was driving left the roadway on the east shoulder while southbound on Ga. Highway 293 around 2:30 p.m., the GSP said in an email. The vehicle traveled down an embankment and struck a tree. Bagwell was ejected.

No charges will be filed.

Good samaritan beaten in friend’s driveway

A woman’s reward to helping a 2-year-old home was being beaten by another juvenile.

The victim was driving to a friends home on Hannon Way Monday night, according to the Cartersville police incident report, and when she entered the neighborhood, she almost hit a 2-year-old boy who was playing in the street. The victim said she told the boy to go home and she would follow him in her vehicle to make sure no one hit him.

When the victim arrived at the boy’s home, she told his mother that she found him playing in the street and that he was too young to be there by himself. The victim later told the officer that the boy’s mother became irate at being told how to raise her son.

The victim left the area after the boy’s mother became upset and continued to her friend’s house.

Shortly after she arrived, according to the report, the boy’s mother and two of her daughters approached the victim while she was standing in her friend’s driveway. The mother reportedly began to yell at the victim, and when the victim responded that the woman needed to watch her children more carefully, one of the daughters allegedly attacked her.

The daughter, a juvenile, was questioned by a Cartersville officer. She told the officer she had anger issues, adding that the victim’s words “triggered something inside of me and it went downhill. I hit her probably about 10 times.”

The suspect also stated she was the only person to attack the victim. However, the victim said she was attacked by three or four people.

The suspect was arrested and charged with battery. The Department of Juvenile Justice was contacted and a representative directed the officer to release the suspect back into her parent’s custody.

Although the officer was told other neighborhood children recorded the fight on their cellphones, various children and adults said they did not see anything that happened.
