Motorcyclist in critical condition after wreck on Hwy. 20

Authorities say that a motorcyclist has been rushed to the hospital in critical condition on Tuesday night after a two-vehicle wreck on Highway 20 at Ronald Reagan Boulevard.

According to Cpl. Doug Rainwater, spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office, at this point they have determined that a 2016 Suzuki motorcycle operated by Sabah Salam, 33, of Cumming was traveling south across Highway 20 from Market Place Boulevard when it collided in the intersection with a 2014 Land Rover that was turning left onto Highway 20. 

At the scene of the wreck, another sheriff's office spokeman said that the motorcyclist was dragged by the Land Rover and trapped underneath it after the wreck.   

Division Chief Jason Shivers of the Forsyth County Fire Department said that bystanders worked to free the victim, but firefighters ultimately used a hydraulic spreader tool to raise the vehicle.  

Rainwater said that sheriff's office investigators are interviewing witnesses and determining the traffic light colors  for both drivers.
