WGCL reports that police believe Bartlett and his girlfriend stopped on the right side of the street, apparently trying to secure a mattress strapped to the top of their car. Bartlett was hit by an oncoming car and died of his injuries, WGCL says.
Johns Creek Police Capt. Todd Hood told WGCL that it was “very tragic” for the family, including “the mother and girlfriend who witnessed this incident.”
