Motorcyclist killed after collision with van

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A man has been charged with vehicular homicide in the death of a motorcyclist in a Friday morning collision.

Andrea E. Sampson, 26, of Lawrenceville, died at a hospital after the 7:57 a.m. wreck at the intersection of Old Norcross Road and Boggs Road.

Sampson was struck while riding his black 2005 Yamaha R6, when Luis A. Zetino-Boch turned his white 2001 Ford Econoline van in front of him. Sampson had the right of way but was unable to stop and hit the right side of the van, police said in a press release.

Zetino-Boch, 21, of Duluth, was arrested and charged with second-degree vehicular homicide, driving without a valid driver's license and failure to yield while turning left, the press release said. He is being held in the Gwinnett County Jail for federal immigration authorities.

The Gwinnett County Police Department Accident Investigation Unit is continuing to look into the accident.
