A Gwinnett County man was killed Tuesday night when his motorcycle collided with a car in Cobb County, police said.
Peter Bullard, 30, of Snellville, was ejected from his motorcycle about 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Cobb Galleria Parkway and Akers Mill Road, spokesman Sgt. Wayne Delk said Thursday in a statement.
The driver of the car, 52-year-old Deborah Schleicher of Rockville, Md., was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital with minor injuries.
Investigators said a 2008 Suzuki GSXR motorcycle was traveling west on Akers Mill Road approaching Cobb Galleria Parkway. At the same time, a 2017 Porsche Cayenne was heading south on Cobb Galleria Parkway approaching Akers Mill Road.
The Porsche went into the intersection into the path of the motorcycle, according to Delk.
“The Suzuki collided with the left side of the Porsche, causing the operator of the Suzuki to be thrown from the motorcycle onto the hood of the Porsche and finally onto the roadway in the intersection,” Delk said.
It has not been determined which driver had the green light at the intersection, police said.
The crash is under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 770-499-3987.
