The victim of Friday's fatal accident on Interstate 985 has been identified.

The Georgia State Patrol said Saturday that Richard Keith Engle, 44, of Talmo died Friday afternoon after his motorcycle overturned on I-985 northbound near the Mundy Mill Road exit.

Gary Sosebee at the Cumming GSP post said Engle was traveling north near mile marker 14 in heavy traffic. As the traffic slowed, he applied his brakes and the bike overturned multiple times.

The motorcycle didn't make contact with any other vehicles, Sosebee said.

The accident shut down the northbound lanes and tied up traffic for a period of time Friday afternoon.
