McIver accidentally shot his wife Sunday, Sept. 25, while the couple was being driven in his car from their farm in Putnam County to their Buckhead residence, a family friend acting as a spokesperson told the Daily Report on Sept. 29.
McIver, who was in the back seat, had a gun resting in his lap for fear of carjackers, and it discharged when the car hit a bump as they traveled through Midtown, the friend, Bill Crane, has said. The bullet went through the front seat, where Diane McIver was sitting, and struck her in the back, according to media reports and accounts from Tex McIver’s spokespeople.
