BUFORD -- Friends of Daniel Seckinger, a member of the Gwinnett County Board of Education, said he was in stable condition Monday night following a serious motorcycle wreck Saturday in northern Gwinnett County.
According to police, the incident occurred at about 10 a.m., on Sardis Church Road when Seckinger's motorcycle hit a Toyota Corolla head on.
"The motorcycle crossed the center line while he was negotiating the curve," said Cpl. Jake Smith with the Gwinnett County Police Department.
Smith said Seckinger's motorcycle hit the passenger side of the vehicle, which was traveling in the opposite direction. Seckinger's injuries were listed as serious at the time of the wreck.
Smith said the Corolla's driver was uninjured in the incident.
Fellow school board member Louise Radloff said Seckinger suffered a broken pelvis and a crushed knee among other injuries. Radloff said Seckinger was going in for surgery Tuesay morning.
Seckinger spoke briefly on the phone Sunday from his hospital room at Gwinnett Medical Center.
He said medical staff had moved him out of the intensive care unit, but he was "still in pain." Seckinger said he suffered several broken bones.
Smith said an investigation of the incident was ongoing and that "nobody is being charged at this time."
He also said that alcohol was not a factor in the incident.
Fellow school board members wished Seckinger a quick recovery.
"It was unfortunate that it happened to him," Radloff said. "He's got some serious injuries, and it could be a long road to recovery."
Radloff said she was told that Seckinger had suffered a broken pelvis and a crushed knee among other injuries.
Board member Carole Boyce said she hoped Seckinger could battle through it.
"He's a tough guy, and he's always upbeat," Boyce said. "I hope that he will recover quickly."
