Police said he caused a fatal car accident on Ga-400, now his name has been cleared a year later

Lider Damis was involved in a head-on collision with Zoey Robinson in February of 2022

ATLANTA — The family of Lider Damis is still reeling from his death in a head-on crash on Feb. 6th, 2022, along Georgia 400.

The crash also took the life of 24-year-old Zoe Robinson, who was driving the other car. For the past 13 months, it has been agonizing for Lider's family and friends to cope with the loss.

Initially, the police report had stated that Lider was at fault for the crash, but this left his loved ones confused and heartbroken.

Najah Francis, who had been taught how to drive by Lider, said that it didn't make sense for him to cause such a terrible accident. It was not until a month after the crash that the police amended the report and listed Robinson as being at fault.

Now, for the sake of Lider's children, his family wants the public to know the truth.

The past 13 months have been devastating for everyone involved in this situation, and the pain will never truly go away for Lider's family and friends. However, they hope that by sharing his story, they can help clear his name and honor his memory.
