MARIETTA, Ga. (CW69 News at 10) — Just before 6 p.m. on April 14, Dennis Wolk, 63, of Cartersville was killed in a motorcycle accident on I-75 Southbound at the Gresham Road overpass, according to Marietta police.
Officers said, based on their preliminary investigation, Wolk was riding a 2017 Harley Davidson Electra Glide motorcycle on I-75 Southbound in the second lane from the left. They said Bennie Demps, 49, of Atlanta was driving a 2017 Peterbilt box truck directly in front of the motorcycle.
Authorities said a collision worked by Georgia State Patrol further south caused southbound traffic to slow down. They said, for reasons unknown, Wolk failed to slow down or stop and struck the truck. Officers said he was pronounced dead at the scene. They said Demps was not injured and they do not expect to charge him in the case.
Investigators are urging anyone who witnessed the accident or has information related to this crash to contact Marietta Police Department’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (S.T.E.P.) Unit Investigator St. Onge at 770-794-5352.
