Chatsworth, GA – Michael Maldonado Killed in Motorcycle Crash at GA-136 & US-411

Chatsworth, GA (May 8, 2022) – Around 5:52 p.m. on the evening of Saturday, May 7, a man was killed in a fatal motorcycle crash in Chatsworth. 

Georgia State Patrol officials responded to the scene of a crash around 5:52 p.m. at the intersection of GA-136 and US-411, where they found that two vehicles collided with each other. One of the vehicles was identified as a motorcycle. Police claim that a Dodge Journey was traveling south when the driver failed to yield at the intersection. When the Journey passed into the path of the motorcyclist, they forcefully collided with one another. The motorcycle was left with extensive damages. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were dispatched to the scene. The motorcyclist, identified as 60-year-old Michael Maldonado, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to severe trauma. The occupants inside the Dodge, who have not yet been identified, were taken to local hospitals for treatment. 

The area was blocked at the intersection until police cleared the scene. 

The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues at this time. 

We would like to offer our condolences to the family and friends of Michael Maldonado at this time.
