Investigators told FOX 5 Freeman died at the scene and two others, including Clark who died overnight, were rushed to an area hospital. 

Drew Nolen, who works at Roswell Tap, a bar near the crash site, rushed to the accident scene with a customer to try to help the injured.

"One of the ladies was touching another lady telling her to keep talking so I just kind of followed suit and talked to the other man over there, " said Nolen.

Marc Wegman, the owner of Adeles, said one of his employees was injured. He said the man, whose last name is Salano, is known simply as "El Fuego" which means “the fire” in Spanish. Wegman said the man suffered a broken pelvis.

Roswell Police are investigating to determine if there were any contributing factors to the accident. Police said charges are pending against the driver, a woman in her sixties, who suffered minor injuries which did not require hospitalization.

The MARTA bus was not involved in the accident.

Southbound traffic was routed off Alpharetta Street at Woodstock Street while investigators worked the scene.
