Motorist with ‘oversized load’ sign caught exceeding speed limit and endangering other drivers on Georgia highway

A 34-year-old driver is now facing multiple charges after authorities caught him driving recklessly on a highway in Georgia.

Multiple calls were made to Rabun County on Friday, just before 3 p.m., reporting a grey 2014 Nissan Sentra with an ‘overside load’ banner. The vehicle was seen speeding and driving recklessly in a southbound direction on Georgia State Route 15.

Ricardo Burgos-Moreno, 34, of Conley, has been identified as the driver.

During the call, the dispatcher received information that Burgos-Moreno was actively engaging in dangerous driving behavior by purposefully forcing other drivers off the road.

Rabun deputies reported that the vehicle proceeded southbound into the city of Clayton, where officers observed Burgos-Moreno driving at a high speed, tailgating other vehicles, and disregarding the use of headlights during rainy conditions.

A Clayton officer attempted to catch up with the car, which was still heading southbound on GA 15 near the intersection of the Clayton Walmart.

The sheriff’s office reported that Burgos-Moreno, when approached by a Rabun County investigator, accelerated dangerously close to another vehicle, switched lanes without using a turn signal into the left lane, and then accelerated once again.

The investigator and a deputy from the RCSO managed to maneuver Burgos-Moreno into the median right before the school zone on GA 15, near the Hollifield Connector.

Burgos-Moreno was arrested and transported to the Rabun County Detention Center. Law enforcement officials charged him with DUI and issued citations for his reckless driving, as reported by the Rabun County Sheriff’s Office and Clayton police.
