ACWORTH — The motorcycle driver who died in a crash Friday on Bells Ferry Road has been identified as Carlisle Lucas Spencer, 30, of Kennesaw.

The crash happened at about 4 p.m. on Bells Ferry Road, at the Lake Forest Drive intersection just south of Highway 92.

The Georgia State Patrol said the motorcyclist ran into the side of a white Kia Sorento driven by Robert Emmett Flavin, 63, of Woodstock.

“Preliminary indication is a motorcycle was southbound on Bells Ferry Road and hit the right side of a Kia Sorrento that was making a left turn onto Bells Ferry Place,” the GSP spokesperson said.

Spencer was in critical condition after the wreck and died on the way to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, the spokesperson said.

The driver of the Kia had cuts to his head, but was evaluated on the scene and released, said Tim Cavender, spokesman for the Cherokee Fire and Emergency Services.

Traffic on the southbound side of Bells Ferry Road had to be rerouted until the cleanup was complete. No other injuries were reported

The investigation into the crash is still ongoing, and charges are pending the completion, the GSP spokesperson said.

As we drove down Bells Ferry Rd, I slowed my vehicle down seeing a lifeless young man who lay in the street. I immediately called 911 to advise them of the situation wanting to know why nobody else had called. I advised the 911 operator that this was a hit and run by an SUV from the boys spirit hovering over his lifeless body. I also advised the operator that many people stopped to look but did nothing to help. When I dropped my friend off at work I immediately came back up Bells Ferry Rd. where the paramedics slowly departed the scene and the boys body was covered. 2 days later I received a call from investigators wanting to know how I knew so much about the case and did I actually see the incident. My reply was no and I told him exactly what I told you in the beginning... Believe what you will but then remember, the wrongfully deceased speak loudest...

Robert Flavin should have been under a jail 33 years ago! I pray they charge him.

What Occurred 33 years ago.

I live over the county line and heard the sirens when I left for a trip up to 92 and saw the crashes aftermath & Prayed for the Cyclist .

Sorry to hear he passed.

Years ago when they just started to widen Bells Ferry my buddy Crashed his bike about 60yds from where this crash occurred. ( his fault , but he made it through).

I know this event is still under investigation but it seems that one of the two may have run the light. Best wishes

I live in Bells Ferry Place. This intersection is a dangerous one. Most of the time the light does not work properly. Cars speed up and down Bells Ferry Road. We have called the city several times about this. I pray for both families.
