A Cobb County school is mourning the death of a custodian killed by a suspected drunk driver.
John Bryan, who worked at Kennesaw Mountain High School, was driving home after work Wednesday night when another car rear-ended his car at Kennesaw Due West Road near Grant Circle, a mere quarter of a mile from the school.
Bryan's car smashed through a fence, tumbled into a ditch and landed in a shallow creek.
Bryan was pronounced dead at a local hospital a short time later.
Keven Inman is accused of causing the crash.
Inman and a passenger in his car, Kelvin Inman, were taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
Keven Inman is charged with driving drunk and vehicular homicide.
Bryan had worked at four different schools in Cobb County since 1999.
"Bryan was well-liked, loved to tell stories and was dedicated to his job," said Kevin Daniel, the principal at Kennesaw Mountain.
"Great guy, just a great, hardworking individual," Daniel said. "He really worked hard for us to make sure the school was ready for students the next day, that everything was fit and this is a first-class facility."
Students like Jazzy Griffin, a junior, said Bryan did not deserve to die the way he did.
"It's so unfair," Griffin said. "It's a selfish thing in general to get behind the wheel when you know you can't take care of yourself and you know you can hurt others."
On Thursday night, a judge ordered Keven Inman to be held without bond.
