It was Sunday morning when 55-year-old Daniel Zimmerman of Cartersville was traveling northbound on Bells Ferry Road when an unexpected accident occurred. According to Patch.com, 19-year-old Joanna Wagner was heading south on Bells Ferry Road in her Honda Civic and as she made a left turn, she crossed paths with the Harley Davidson bike Zimmerman was riding on.
