CHEROKEE COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A second accident killed another man on the same Cherokee County road within a few hours Saturday morning.

According to Georgia State Patrol, 52-year-old John Meyer was riding a motorcycle on Arnold Mill Road when the he crossed the centerline of the road at O'Hara Drive and hit a concrete mixer truck head-on.

The crash occurred around 11:15 a.m.

Authorities say the Meyer was killed on impact.  No one in the concrete mixer truck was injured.

The investigating trooper said Meyer was riding too fast as he went around a curve, which is what caused him to travel into the opposite lane.

Just five hours earlier, a man was killed on the same road in Cherokee County when his vehicle went off-road, crashing into a utility pole.
