Leesburg, GA – Donald Braddock Killed in Motorcycle Accident at US-19 & Glendale Rd

Leesburg, GA (August 5, 2022) – One person was killed in a fatal motorcycle accident that took place at an intersection in Leesburg on Thursday afternoon, August 4. 

According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened at the intersection of US-19 and Glendale Road. A motorcyclist was traveling in the area when they entered the intersection and they were struck by a passenger vehicle. The car was making a left turn and allegedly did not see the motorcyclist in time, causing the crash. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The motorcyclist, who has since been identified as 31-year-old Donald Braddock, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Nobody else was hurt in the crash. 

The roadway was blocked completely for a short period of time at the intersection. Police cleared the scene as quickly as possible so traffic could return to normal. 

No further details have been released but the investigation into the collision continues. 

We offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim whose life was taken in this accident. 

Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia

Motorcycle accidents are some of the most severe accidents that happen on our roads in the state of Georgia every year. This is due to the fact that, aside from sometimes wearing helmets, motorcyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. Motorcyclists are more likely than other parties to sustain serious injuries or even suffer fatal results in the event of an accident. In 2020 alone, it was reported that approximately 179 people were killed in fatal motorcycle accidents due to the negligence of others. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal motorcycle crash, you should speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
