The accident happened around 2:40 p.m. on McEver Road when Hedges' motorcycle collided head-on with a pickup truck driven by Matthew Millwood, 22, of Flowery Branch.

The victim died after he was taken from the scene to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in critical condition.

Millwood suffered only minor injuries.
