Biker Dies in Marietta Motorcycle Accident Due to Excessive Speed

On Sunday, March 4, 2012, a motorcycle accident in Marietta occurred that seriously injured the motorcyclist. According to Cobb County police, the motorcycle crashed head-on into a car, after crossing a double yellow line. The wreck took place around 2:30 p.m. on Hurt and Old Tennessee roads.

Investigators believe that Leonard Daggett, the 30-year-old motorcyclist involved in this crash, crossed the double yellow line while attempting to negotiate a curve. The investigation report indicated that the motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Hurt Road at excessive speed. However, investigators are unsure just how fast the motorcyclist was traveling on his yellow 2000 Honda CVR929 motorcycle at the time of the crash.

The motorcycle crashed into a blue 2000 Honda CR-V traveling westbound on Hurt Road. Two people were inside the CR-V at the time of the crash. William J. Hill, the driver, did not appear to be injured; however, Chandra R. Keyon, the 24-year-old passenger, was injured and transported to Wellstar South Cobb Hospital for medical care.

The motorcyclist suffered catastrophic injuries in the wreck and was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in critical condition. Sadly, Leonard Daggett died of his injuries almost one week after the crash.

Police are not expected to file charges in this case, and are asking for anyone with information about the wreck to call (770) 499-3987.

The injuries the CR-V passenger suffered are not expected to be life-threatening.

Kalka & Baer would like to wish Chandra Keyon a fast and full recovery and would also like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Leonard Daggett.
