Macon, GA – 57-Year-Old Man Killed in Motorcycle Crash

Macon, Georgia (May 25, 2023) – On Interstate 16, there was a motorcycle accident that resulted in the death of a 57-year-old man.

According to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, the accident happened on Thursday, May 25, at 3:00 a.m. 

The 57-year-old man was driving a Yamaha motorcycle when a tarp that was lying on the road in a construction zone became entangled in the rear tire of the motorcycle, causing him to lose control of the vehicle and crash into the guard rail.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. 


I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.


Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia

Accidents involving motorcycles are some of the deadliest and most dangerous there are. A significant number of people who are involved in motorcycle accidents sustain head injuries, neck injuries, broken bones, require surgery, or pass away as a direct result of the collision.

A typical automobile provides its occupants with protection in the form of seat belts, airbags, and the four walls that surround them. In addition to this, they have what are called “crumple zones” that can absorb some of the impact of a collision. As a result, passengers in motor vehicles are less likely to sustain injuries in collisions than motorcyclists.

In the event of a collision involving a motorcycle, all of the following are viable outcomes to consider:

  • Being thrown from the motorcycle.
  • A direct hit to the body from the other vehicle.
  • Hitting the pavement at very high speeds.

Because of this, being involved in a motorcycle accident is the most terrifying thing that can happen to a rider.
