Gwinnett County police said a motorcyclist from Suwanee died on Friday after colliding with a Honda Accord at the intersection of Collins Hill Road and Russell Road in Lawrenceville.

Police said 49-year-old Robert Boren was ejected from his motorcycle when he collided with the Honda, which was turning left at an intersection in front of the oncoming motorcycle. Boren died after being transported to a local hospital, police said.

Police said a driver and passenger were in the Honda, and neither was injured.

Police responded to the scene shortly before 6 p.m. on Friday after a 911 caller said a motorcycle driver was involved and was injured.

The preliminary investigation showed the driver of the Honda Accord had a solid green light when it turned in front of the motorcycle.

Police said the investigation is still active and no charges had been filed as of Monday morning.

"Honda Accord had a solid green light when it turned in front of the motorcycle" which means the Honda driver is likely 100% at fault presuming the motorcycle was coming from the opposite direction and also would normally have a solid green as well. Additionally the left turning driver has the responsibility to be certain his path is clear regardless of the light.

The driver killed the motorcyclist and should be charged with vehicular homicide. If the car had a green light so did the guy on the motorcycle. The motorcyclist was right. Regrettably, he's now dead right.

The car driver killed him and should be made to pay for it.

They always turn left LEFT right into the path of a motorcycle
