A Maysville man was killed Sunday when he was ejected from his motorcycle and struck by a tractor trailer.
According to a news release from Gwinnett County police spokesman Cpl. Wilbert Rundles, Eduard Onufriychuk, 25, was traveling northbound on the shoulder of I-85 South between Braselton and Buford when he encountered an unoccupied gray Nissan Altima parked on the shoulder. Onufriychuk attempted to avoid colliding with the Altima but was unable to do so, according to police.
Onufriychuk struck the vehicle and was ejected from the motorcycle. He landed in the right lane of I-85 and was struck and killed by a tractor trailer.
His passenger, who was unidentified, was able to jump off the back just prior to the collision and received minor injuries, according to Rundles.
No other injuries were reported.
