Gainesville, GA (February 10, 2023) – On Friday afternoon, February 10, a fatal motorcycle collision took place at an intersection in Gainesville. According to Gainesville Police, the accident happened at the intersection of Browns Bridge Road and Cresswind Parkway. Police confirmed that a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle were traveling in the area when they collided at the intersection due to reasons that are not entirely known. The motorcycle was left extensively damaged and had to be towed away from the scene.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other Gainesville responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The motorcyclist, who has not yet been formally identified, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. It is not believed that anybody inside the passenger vehicle sustained injuries.
The roadway was blocked in the area for several hours until police were able to fully clear the scene. This led to delays for some time. Gainesville Police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the accident at this time.
We want to take this time to offer our warmest condolences to the family and friends of the victim whose life was taken prematurely in this fatal accident.
Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
Some types of accidents are less common on Georgia roads than others. Though motorcycle accidents do not happen as commonly as other collisions in Georgia, they lead to some of the most catastrophic damage and injuries. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists have next to no protection from harm on our roads.
On top of the many accidents that lead to injuries, motorcyclists also have a huge risk of fatality in the event of an accident. In 2019, it was reported that 170 individuals were killed in fatal motorcycle accidents in Georgia.
