A motorcyclist was killed Friday night in a two-vehicle wreck at E.E. Butler Parkway and Monroe Drive in Gainesville.

Early reports indicate the motorcycle failed to yield the right of way to a Ford Expedition, said Cpl. Kevin Holbrook, Gainesville police spokesman.

The motorcycle driver was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, where he later died.

The Expedition driver was arrested at the scene and charged with DUI, Holbrook said.

Names of those involved in the wreck, which took place at 11 p.m., weren’t available Sunday afternoon.
