PUTNAM COUNTY -- A Putnam County crash claimed the life of a Milledgeville man Friday evening after his motorcycle slammed into a pickup truck making a turn.
Glenn Hathaway, 60, was pronounced dead at the scene after his brand new Harley-Davidson FLTRX collided with a 2015 Ford F250 being driven by Matthew James Fulton, 36, of Greensboro, Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills reported Monday. Fulton, who had been traveling northbound on Old Phoenix Road, was attempting to turn into the business he owns at 637 Old Phoenix Road, Willow Oak Landscaping, when he pulled into the path of the oncoming motorcycle at 5:14 p.m.
Sills said Monday he expects to charge Fulton with misdemeanor homicide by vehicle and failure to yield the right of way.
There was no evidence alcohol was involved with either man, the sheriff said.
