SMYRNA, Ga. -- Police in Cobb County continue to investigate an accident that left a motorcyclist dead Friday afternoon.

Authorities said that based on their preliminary investigation Randall Lewis of Dallas was killed while traveling on South Atlanta Road while approaching the intersection with Plant Atkinson Road heading south.

That's where police said a 2009 Nissan Maxima driven by a 64-year-old man out of Smyrna turned out in front of Lewis coming from the other direction.

Lewis attempted to avoid the collision by braking. However, the front of his Suzuki GSX-R600 struck the Nissan and ejected. Authorities said he was pronounced dead on the scene by the Cobb County Medical Examiner. The other driver was not injured.

The Cobb County Police Department has called out the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) Unit to further investigate the accident and is asking anyone with information about the crash to call 770-499-4401.
