Forsyth County News


The Wednesday morning commute was snarled along Ga. 400 in north Forsyth after a motorcycle collided with a sport utility vehicle, authorities said.

Forsyth County Sheriff's Capt. Tim House said the motorcyclist, whose name has not been released, suffered minor injuries and was not taken to a hospital.

He said the motorcycle and the truck were traveling south on Ga. 400 between Pilgrim Mill Road and Exit 17 when the collision occurred about 8 a.m.

"The SUV stopped and (the motorcyclist) was so close he couldn't stop in time," House said. "The bike went down and he went down with it."

House said it was not clear if the motorcyclist would be cited.

The wreck was the first of at least two incidents to disrupt traffic Wednesday on Ga. 400 in north Forsyth.

Just before noon, public safety officials responded to a single-vehicle wreck north of Crossroads Road.

In that case, the driver had apparently suffered a heart attack before driving off the road, authorities said.

Forsyth County Fire Capt. Jason Shivers said the man was taken to Northside Hospital-Forsyth for treatment.
