The motorcyclist killed on Saturday afternoon in a wreck on Alcovy Street in Monroe has been identified as Nicholas Anthony Hulsey, 28, of Monroe.
According to the report from Georgia State Patrol, he was on a 2004 Kawasaki ZX10R motorcycle traveling south on Alcovy Street at a high rate of speed in an attempt to elude a Georgia State Patrol trooper that was following with its emergency lights and siren activated. A 2012 Toyota Highlander sport utility vehicle was stopped at a stop sign facing east on Belle Meade Road at its intersection with Alcovy Street, south of where the pursuit was initiated and over a hill crest. GSP report that the pursuit was initiated about 0.19 miles north of Belle Meade Road. As the Highlander began to turn left onto Alcovy Street, the motorcycle crested the hill. According to the report, the motorcyclist braked while steering left in an attempt to avoid the collision, but crossed the yellow center line and hit the front driver’s side of the Highlander in the northbound lane, becoming wedged underneath it. When the trooper arrived on the scene, the motorcycle driver had been ejected and was found beside the Highlander. The driver of the Highlander, Michael Harmon, 62, of Conyers, and two passengers were transported to Piedmont Walton with minor injuries. Walton County Deputy Coroner Phillip Allen pronounced the driver of the motorcycle deceased at the scene.
GSP report that three witnesses and the driver of the Highlander reported that the motorcyclist was driving at a high rate of speed over the crest of the hill and the driver of the Toyota Highlander had no way to avoid being struck by the motorcycle.
“This report is for the purposes of documenting the vehicle, occupant, and roadway information only. All evidence, additional statements, and final conclusions can be obtained from the Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team (SCRT), report #SCRTE-026-18,” GSP Trooper First Class Cal Barton said. “In addition to the Georgia State Patrol, there were members of the Monroe Police Department, Walton County Sheriff’s Office, Monroe Fire Department, and Walton County Coroner’s Office on the scene.
