Motorcyclist injured in north Forsyth crash

NORTH FORSYTH -- A driver was injured after he was ejected from his motorcycle during a crash in north Forsyth Friday at the afternoon rush hour.

The victim was traveling north on Dahlonega Hwy (Hwy. 9) around 4:30 p.m. when the driver of an Infinity G35 reportedly attempted to make a left turn off Johnson Road, which is between Spot Road and Keith Bridge Road (Hwy. 306), into the northbound lane of the highway.

The motorcyclist hit the right side of the Infinity, which then collided into a third car parked nearby. The third car was unoccupied.

The driver of the Infinity reportedly said he did not see the motorcycle before making the turn and was issued a citation for failure to yield while turning left.

Neither he nor his passenger was injured in the crash.

The victim was wearing a motorcycle helmet and was transported to North Fulton hospital with what were described as non-life threatening injuries.
