"Prayers for the family of one of our own class of 2016 Indians who died this morning on his motorcycle," the school wrote in a Twitter post. "Tragic."
It was one of two fatal motorcycle accidents police reported Sunday in Cobb.
In the second, a motorcyclist attempting to change lanes struck the back of a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado about 6:20 p.m.
Nakia T. Simmons, 41, of Powder Springs, was driving eastbound on I-20 between Factory Shoals Road and Riverside Parkway “at a speed well in excess of the posted 60 mph speed limit,” Pierce said.
After striking the truck, Simmons “lost control and traveled down the south side embankment where he and the motorcycle came to an uncontrolled stop,” Pierce said.
He died at the scene.
The truck driver, Carlton A. Ferguson, 41, of Stone Mountain, was not injured in the collision.
