A Georgia motorcyclist was killed when two vehicles hit him while he was stopped on Ga. 400 in north Fulton County on Saturday evening.

Rafael Sims, 36, of Rossville, died at the scene of the incident, which happened in the northbound lanes near Abernathy Road, officials said.

Investigators determined Sims had been riding his motorcycle on the highway shortly before 9:30 p.m. when it became disabled, Sandy Springs police spokesman Sgt. Salvador Ortega said. When Sims stopped, he was hit by a Ford Mustang, Ortega said. He was then hit a second time by a Ford Ranger pickup truck.

Sims’ body was found lying in the highway, Ortega said.

Both drivers remained at the scene of the crash and called 911. The investigation is ongoing.
