A motorcyclist is dead after losing control of their vehicle during a high-speed chase on Interstate 75 in Georgia.

WGXA reported that the accident took place on Sunday around 8:30 p.m. when Monroe County deputies attempted to pull over the motorcyclist who was going 92 mph in a 70 mph zone.

Deputies followed the driver southbound on Interstate 75. However, at some point during the chase, the driver of the motorcycle lost control and hit the guardrail which caused him to be ejected from the motorcycle.

The Georgia Department of Transportation tweeted and shared an update about the incident, warning drivers that they would experience some traffic delays if they took Interstate 75.

“A fatality accident on I-75 southbound at Rumble Road (exit 181) has blocked 2 of 4 lanes. Estimated time of clearance - 10:15 p.m. For help with alternate routes call #511Georgia,” GDOT tweeted.

WMGT, a local NBC affiliate, reported that the victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The case has been handed over to the Georgia State Patrol, which is currently investigating the fatality.

Since this case is an ongoing investigation, police do not plan on releasing the name of the motorcyclist until the next of kin is notified about the death.

Once contact has been made with the relatives of the deceased, police are expected to release more details about the accident.
