ATLANTA — Motorcyclist Fatally Struck by Car: A tragic accident unfolded on Friday night in Atlanta, resulting in the death of a motorcyclist who was attempting to split lanes at a high rate of speed. Atlanta Police Department officers swiftly responded to the scene at Greenbriar Parkway SW and Continental Colony Parkway SW around 11:10 p.m. following reports of a two-vehicle collision.

Upon arrival, our officers discovered that the accident involved a Honda CR-V and a Kawasaki motorcycle. Tragically, the 36-year-old male motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene by our emergency medical personnel.

The crash also critically injured a passenger on the motorcycle, who was quickly transported to Grady Hospital for emergency treatment. The driver of the Honda CR-V, a 29-year-old woman, was also taken to the hospital but was reported to be in stable condition.

Preliminary investigations by our Atlanta Police Department revealed that the CR-V driver was traveling north on Continental Colony Parkway SW and was attempting to turn left onto Greenbriar Parkway.

The motorcyclist, who was reportedly traveling at a high speed while lane-splitting, collided with the CR-V in the middle of the intersection. The exact circumstances leading to the collision remain under investigation as our officers work to gather more details and eyewitness accounts.
