Driver charged in motorcycle death

SUWANEE -- Police have charged a Suwanee woman in the death of a motorcyclist near a Gwinnett County high school last week.

Police on Friday arrested Anne Clements, 46, on misdemeanor vehicular homicide charges and with failure to yield, a traffic violation.

Investigators believe Clements was southbound on Suwanee Dam Road in a 2009 Honda Civic when she turned in the path of Suwanee resident Thomas Haugh, 53, who was riding a 2007 Kawasaki KL650 motorcycle.

Haugh was thrown from the motorcycle and died at the scene. Clements was attempting to enter a school driveway at the time of the 11:30 a.m. collision Thursday, said Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Brian Kelly.

Kelly was unsure what purpose Clements had in visiting the high school. Jail records list her as unemployed.

Clements posted $2,600 bond and was released from the Gwinnett County Jail later Friday.
