Danielsville, GA – Whitney Lee Killed in Motorcycle Crash on GA-98
Danielsville, GA (March 1, 2022) – A woman was killed in a fatal motorcycle crash that took place in Danielsville on Friday evening, February 25.
Georgia State Patrol officials confirmed that the accident happened on GA-98 at the intersection with Bond Road. A motorcyclist identified as 39-year-old Whitney Teri Lee was traveling east on GA-98 around 7 p.m. A 76-year-old man identified as Charlie Bond was traveling west when he started to make a turn into a driveway. This is when the two vehicles forcefully collided with one another.
Several responders, including Madison County fire crews and paramedics, were dispatched to the scene. Lee was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. Bond was not injured but remained at the scene.
Bond has since been charged for his role in the accident. His charges include driving under the influence, first-degree vehicular homicide, failing to yield while making a left turn, having an open container of alcohol, and more.
Due to the severity of the collision, the roadway was blocked at the intersection for some time.
No further details have been released. The investigation into the accident continues.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
