SUGAR HILL -- The investigation continues into a multi-vehicle accident that took the life of a motorcyclist over the weekend.
On Monday, Gwinnett County police identified the male victim as 45-year-old Kim McFarland of Cumming. McFarland was driving his BMW motorcycle east on Buford Dam Road Friday evening, "intending to continue straight" at the intersection with Suwanee Dam Road, police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith said.
The driver of a GMC Envoy was traveling west on Buford Dam Road at the same time and was attempting to turn when they collided, Smith said.
Smith said no charges had been filed in the incident as of Monday, but the final decision would be pending the completion of an investigation.
"Speed may be a factor in this incident" but alcohol was not, he said.
