NORCROSS -- Gwinnett police on Tuesday identified a motorcyclist killed in a chain-reaction, rush-hour crash Monday as a 38-year-old McDonough man.
Brandon Roy was riding a 2007 Harley Davidson when he was struck about 5 p.m. on Beaver Ruin Road at Interstate 85. He died on the scene, said Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter.
A preliminary accident investigation has shown that 42-year-old Dacula resident Kenneth Griffin was traveling westbound in the left turn lane on Beaver Ruin Road when he failed to stop, causing a chain-reaction crash that included three other cars and the motorcycle, which were waiting to turn left at the traffic light, Ritter said.
Griffin and the drivers of two other cars were transported to Gwinnett Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, Ritter said. One driver was not injured.
An investigation continues, and charges are pending against Griffin, Ritter said.
