Last year, the number of highway fatalities in Georgia hit a decade high. By December, there had already been 1,500 fatalities on Georgia roadways. Distracted driving is a factor in this increase in accidents. However, not all accidents can be blamed on paying more attention to a cell phone or something other than the road. Sometimes, an accident is just that – an accident.
The Atlanta Journal and Constitution reported on the death of a motorcyclist. The crash, which involved a motorcyclist and another driver, occurred Monday afternoon in Cobb County, Georgia.
52-year-old Jeffrey Hinkle was traveling on board his 2012 Suzuki GSX-R northbound on Casteel Road. He was crossing over Dallas Highway when he was struck and killed. Hinkle had the green light at the time of the crash.
The other vehicle, driven by 72-year-old Alfred Onken, was a 2002 Subaru Forrester. Onken had been traveling westbound on Dallas Highway in Marietta when he struck Hinkle.
Hinkle was rushed to Kennestone Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police have not filed any charges in the accident but ask anyone with information about the crash to contact Cobb County Police at 770-499-3987.
