ATLANTA — Get ready to grab a box of tissues. The Atlanta Falcons are rising up and honoring a car crash victim, days after he was killed.
The crash happened June 17 at the intersection of Flat Shoals Road and Guilford Lane near Old National Highway. Police said Chaun "C-Mac" McKeever was killed after a 16-year-old girl, who didn't have a driver's license, crashed into his car head-on.
Family members told Channel 2 Action News McKeever played flag football, was on the kickball team and loved spending time with his 8-year-old daughter.
