Motorcyclist Killed in Cobb County Traffic Accident

By Grant Law Office on August 27, 2012

A 30-year-old man was killed and a 12-year-old boy was injured in a Georgia car accident involving a collision between a 2005 Honda CBR 600 motorcycle and a 2007 Toyota Sienna LE minivan. According to a news report in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the fatal motorcycle accident occurred at Pawnee Drive and Shawnee Lane in Marietta. Officials say the 30-year-old female driver of the minivan made a left turn into the path of the motorcycle. The motorcyclist was killed and his 12-year-old passenger suffered what appears to be a non-life-threatening injury. The driver of the Toyota has not been cited for the crash, but the investigation is ongoing.

According to the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GHSA), 177 people were killed in Georgia motorcycle accidents in the year 2008. That number reflects a steady increase from the 163 fatalities suffered in 2007, the 154 fatal injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents in the year 2006, and the 144 motorcycle accident fatalities in 2005. Additionally, 5,051 registered motorcyclists were involved in accidents in the year 2008, resulting in 3,471 injuries.

It is common for Georgia motorcycle accidents to occur at intersections. When a driver causes serious or fatal injuries by failing to properly yield the right of way to a motorcyclist, he or she can be held liable.
