No charges will be filed in a Saturday accident in which a 32-year-old Atlanta man fell out of a bus, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Masharn Austin suffered minor injuries in the accident at the Sardis Road roundabout in northwest Hall.

“It is unknown as to how the door of the bus opened, but Mr. Austin was leaning or had fallen against the door when it opened,” Sgt. Auston Allen said.

Austin “fell onto the roadway and the bus pulled to the shoulder of the road,” Allen said.

Austin was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville. He was in satisfactory condition Sunday, Nov. 18, according to the hospital.

The incident took place about 4:30 p.m. Nov. 17.

GSP Cpl. Major Patterson said Saturday the bus was registered to a limousine company.

The bus was traveling south on Sardis Road through the roundabout when the man fell out.

The group traveling in the bus declined to comment.

Times staff members Shannon Casas and Jeff Gill contributed to this report.
