The wreck happened around 6 a.m. Friday near the intersection of Lawrenceville Highway and Steel Drive.
DeKalb police Lt. B.K. DeLoach told the AJC that the preliminary investigation indicated that the driver of an eastbound Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck was attempting to make a left turn into the Steel Mart steel supply company when he “didn’t see the scooter coming in his direction, turned into it and struck the scooter.”
The man driving the scooter died at the scene. His identity has not been determined, DeLoach said.
