MARIETTA, Ga. -- Two people were killed Thursday night when a high-speed chase ended with an out-of-control motorcycle roaring through a parking lot, bouncing off a parked van and crashing through the front of a Cobb County business.
The motorcyclists were part of a large group of bikers Georgia State troopers tried to stop for speeding on I-75 at Northside Dr. in Atlanta. They refused to pull over and led police on a chase up the interstate into Cobb County.
On Canton Rd. one of the riders, who was carrying a passenger, lost control of his bike, hit a curb and went flying off the road. Careening through a strip mall parking lot, he hit the parked van, leaving a huge dent in the side. The bike and the two victims continued until they crashed through a plate-glass window of a store.
The rider and the passenger were both killed.
Pieces of the high performance sports bike were scattered across the parking lot.
Police have not released the names of the victims.
