The moped driver who was involved in an accident May 4 near Flowery Branch High School died from his injuries Wednesday, May 17, according to Hall County Sheriff's Office officials. 

Christopher Lee Powell, 36, was struck by a vehicle the morning of May 4 as he was stopped on Credit Drive to turn onto Hog Mountain Road, according to Hall County Sheriff's Office Spokeswoman BJ Williams.
