According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened around 4:16 p.m. on GA-106 near the area of New Hope Road.

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The motorcyclist was thrown off of his motorcycle and into a nearby ditch. He was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries.

The highway was blocked in the area for several hours as police worked to clear the scene. This led to delays until the scene was fully cleared.
