Motorcycle Accidents in Macon

Two people were killed in separate motorcycle accidents in Macon, Georgia. The accidents occurred in the space of about 90 minutes on Sunday night, March 14.

The first accident happened just after 8 p.m. on Shurling Drive close to Eastview Avenue and Thompson Stadium. Officials said a westbound motorcycle entered a turn lane and hit a concrete median before striking an oncoming car.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones identified the motorcyclist as James David Seales, a 70-year-old resident of Gray. He died in a city hospital.

The second accident happened around 9:30 p.m in the 3500 block of Mercer University Drive.

The victim has been identified as 25-year-old Michael Hamilton of Macon. He too died after being transported to a hospital. 

Officials said two other vehicles were involved in the crash but no further details were given.

Sunday’s crashes followed a fatal car accident involving a motorcyclist that occurred on Georgia 400 on Saturday.

The Sandy Springs Police Department said officers responded to a 911 call near Abernathy Road at 9:24 p.m. When they arrived, they discovered the body of a man lying on the road.

Based on eyewitness testimony and evidence at the scene, traffic investigators determined that the man had been riding a motorcycle when it became disabled.

Both the motorcycle and the victim were struck by a Ford Mustang and a Ford Ranger.

The victim, who was later identified as 36-year-old Rafael Sims, died at the scene. He was a resident of Rossville.

The people driving the other two vehicles stayed at the scene and they both called 911. 

The investigation into the separate motorcycle accidents in Macon is ongoing.
