MONROE, Ga. — Correction: We do have a correction on what we reported earlier Sunday evening on this story. Although information sent to 13WMAZ by Georgia State Patrol said a trooper hit the motorcyclist prior to the fatal accident, they later sent a correction into our newsroom. It says, "There was no contact with the trooper vehicle and the motorcycle. It was an error."


A woman is dead after a car and motorcycle collided late Saturday night on I-75N in Monroe County.

According to Georgia State Patrol, a trooper clocked four motorcycles going over 100 mph and tried to stop all four.

State patrol says only two motorcyclists stopped and the other two sped off, leading to a chase.

The trooper could only keep sight on one of the two fleeing motorcyclists, at which point a second trooper going north on I-75 began to assist the first trooper.

During the chase, the driver of the motorcycle was hit by another vehicle and then ran into a car in a curve in the road.

Both the driver and passenger on the motorcycle were ejected, and the passenger landed in the left lane of I-75N.

The names of those involved have not been released yet, though state patrol confirmed the female passenger died in the wreck.

The accident is still under investigation.
