Nolan was pronounced dead at WellStar Kennestone Hospital.
Hamm was not hurt and is not expected to be charged, Bowman said.

It was the third serious car-pedestrian collision and second fatality in two days in the southeastern quarter of Cobb County.
Preston Lee Hester, 62, of Greensboro, NC, was seriously injured Thursday about 10 p.m. when he was hit crossing Powder Springs Road at Oxford Road by a green 2002 Toyota Camry. He was taken to Kennestone.
No charges are expected in either of those accidents.
Friday’s fatal collision was about four miles south of the accident that injured Hester and eight miles west of the crash that killed Collins.
It also was four miles south of the area along Austell Road where 4-year-old A.J. Newman was killed in April 2010 while trying to cross without a crosswalk. That death led to the conviction of A.J.’s mother, Raquel Nelson, for misdemeanor second-degree vehicular homicide for failing to stop him from running into the street.
