A fun day drinking with friends on a pedal pub in Atlanta can take a scary turn fast.
Several people sustained injuries after a crash while riding a pedal pub Saturday in midtown Atlanta.
According to the Atlanta Police Department, the pedal pub, full of riders, was going too fast as it tried making a turn and flipped over.
15 people were injured; three seriously and 2 critical, according to Atlanta Fire Rescue.
In a statement, President of Pedal Pub Development, LLC, Todd Treml, said, The safety of our customers is our top priority, so we were shocked and saddened to learn of the situation involving one of the independently owned and operated franchises in Atlanta.
