According to a news release, Pitts was a passenger in the vehicle and was on his way to a meeting when the car he was riding in was struck by another vehicle.
Pitts says the driver of the other vehicle was charged by the Sandy Springs Police Dept. with a DUI, open container, driving on a suspended license and failure to yield.
No serious injuries were sustained in the accident.
"This accident is an example of the unfortunate reality that there are individuals driving in our community under the influence at all times of day," Pitts said in a statement.
