A motorcyclist sustained serious injuries in a car crash near Newnan. The accident occurred just before noon on Saturday, September 11. The precise location of the car crash near Newnan was at the intersection of the Roscoe Road and GA 34 Bypass.
According to the details shared by the Georgia State Patrol, the motorcyclist was traveling northbound along the Roscoe Road at the time. There were no passengers accompanying the motorcyclist.
The second vehicle involved in the crash was headed southbound along the Roscoe Road. As both vehicles reached the GA 34 Bypass intersection, the car driver attempted to turn left onto the Bypass. This brought the car into the path of the motorcyclist, causing a high-speed collision.
The sheer impact of the collision caused the motorcyclist to suffer serious injuries. Once the crash was called in, paramedics and first responders arrived on the scene. Given the seriousness of the injuries, an air ambulance was called in. The injured motorcyclist was then transported to an Atlanta hospital by air.
Latest reports from GSP reveal that the motorcyclist is no longer in critical condition and is expected to survive the wreck. There are no reports on the condition of the car driver, although it is unlikely that the driver suffered any injuries.
Following the accident, the intersection was briefly closed to traffic. This was done so that on-site cleanup and investigation could be conducted.
GSP continues to investigate the crash. The focus of the investigations at this point is to determine whether the car had the right of way when taking the left turn. If the investigations reveal that the motorcyclist had the right of way, the injured party may be entitled to seek compensatory damages from the car driver.
