State patrol: 2 killed in Paulding motorcycle crash after being hit from behind

A man and woman were killed Saturday night in Paulding County when their motorcycle was struck from behind, sending the Harley-Davidson into oncoming traffic, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

The crash happened on Ga. 101 near the Union Community and the Carroll County line shortly before 9 p.m., deputies said.

Investigators believe Allynda Jackson of Villa Rica was driving southbound when she hit the motorcycle, which was stopped and attempting to make a left turn onto Harmony Road, according to a State patrol crash report.

The impact pushed the Harley-Davidson into the path of another motorcycle, a Honda Shadow that was traveling northbound on Ga. 101, the report states.

Patrick McCloud, 32, of Temple, and his girlfriend, Danielle Carteaux, 31, of Dallas, who were aboard the Harley-Davidson, died in the crash. The couple are survived by a son and numerous other relatives, according to their online obituaries. McCloud is also survived by a daughter.

Neither Jackson nor the driver of the Honda, Aren Roland of Roopville, were seriously injured.

The crash remains under investigation and no charges had been filed Tuesday afternoon.

A GoFundMe page was created to assist the families of McCloud and Carteaux. Plans for memorial services were pending Wednesday.
