ORIGINAL STORY

Charges are pending in an accident that took the life of a motorcyclist late Friday afternoon.

At around 3:55 p.m. April 11, Georgia State Patrol troopers were dispatched to the two-vehicle accident on Bells Ferry Road at Bells Ferry Place just south of Highway 92 in southwest Cherokee County. 

Preliminary reports indicate a motorcycle traveling southbound on Bells Ferry Road struck the right side of a Kia Sorento making a left turn onto Bells Ferry Place, said spokesperson Gordy Wright. 

The person on the motorcycle died while being transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta. Wright said the next of kin for the motorcyclist has not been notified at this time. 

The accident remains under investigation.

I know neither drivers, but know you can't jump to the conclusion that the driver of the Kia is guilty of anything until the investigation determines the speed of the motorcycle, etc. If he happened to be going 90mph the Kia could have been in process of the turn when the motorcycle hit him.I have seen a wreck where two were pulling out at the same time, a car and a motorcycle that were turning in different directions and hit in the middle. Incredibly unfortunate but an accident that couldn't be blamed on either. I hate it for both families whether or not fault can be assigned.
