HERO operator seriously injured by alleged DUI driver

ATLANTA -- A HERO operator is in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle on I-75 early Saturday morning.

An Atlanta Police Department spokesperson said HERO operator Moses King was setting out road flares following another accident on I-75 south of 17th Street when he was struck by a 2006 Mazda 3 operated by 25-year-old Lindsay Clark.

Clark also struck another vehicle after skidding into King.

King was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Clark was taken into custody and is now facing traffic violations that include driving under the influence, reckless driving and serious injury by vehicle. She had her first court appearance Monday morning, where her bond was set at $77,500.

If King passes away from his injuries, Clark will return to court to have her bond reset. Her next appearance is currently scheduled for Aug. 17. King was still in critical condition Monday afternoon.

The Georgia DOT Transportation Management Center (TMC) dispatches HEROs to traffic-related incidents around Atlanta's more high-trafficked areas to offer assistance to motorists and law-enforcement.
