FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A Cumming man died July 3 when his motorcycle veered into oncoming traffic along Buford Dam Road and was struck by an SUV.

The crash happened shortly after 2:30 p.m. near the intersection of Timber Lake Trail. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office identified the deceased as 24-year-old Tyler Wilson.

Wilson was driving a 2013 Yamaha FZ8 eastbound. When a Buick Enclave traveling in front of him stopped for traffic, Wilson was unable to stop in time and clipped the driver’s side corner of the vehicle. The impact sent him careening into westbound lanes directly in front of an oncoming Chevy Tahoe.

Deputies said the Tahoe’s driver attempted to brake and steer to the right of the motorcycle but was unable to avoid the crash. Wilson died at the scene.

The driver of the Tahoe was not identified and no charges have been filed. Deputies continue to investigate the crash.
