Georgia State Patrol has released more details about the motorcycle accident that occurred Nov. 19 on Highway 189 on Lookout Mountain that left the motorcycle driver dead. The accident occurred when the motorcycle crossed the centerline and hit another car head on.

The driver of the motorcycle, 29-year-old Brittan David Burnett of Calhoun, was allegedly fleeing the scene of a burglary that occurred at a resident on North Sunset Drive on Lookout Mountain. The motorcycle he was riding had been stolen from that residence.

Two other individuals, 23-year-old Brandy Corvi and 24-year-old Daniel Shall, both of Calhoun, were reportedly following Burnett in a vehicle when the wreck occurred. They were witnesses to the accident but fled the scene before authorities arrived.

Law enforcement arrested the pair Nov. 20 in Rhea County, Tenn., after the car they were driving ran out of gas. A Rhea County officer stopped to assist the disabled car and ran the tag number of the vehicle. The vehicle information came back as stolen out of Gordon County, Ga. The occupants of the vehicle fled on foot but were apprehended and taken to the Rhea County jail. The vehicle was reportedly full of stolen goods.

After being booked in Rhea County, Corvi and Shall were transported to Gordon County to face charges there before being brought back to Dade County.

The driver of the vehicle involved in the accident was driven by 71 year-old Glenda Blevins of Trenton. A GSP spokesman said that she was treated at Erlanger Medical Center with what was thought to be non-life threatening injuries.
