MONROE, Ga. — A motorcycle driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a crash Thursday afternoon, Nov. 14.

State troopers said 62-year-old Kathy Green of Monroe pulled her sedan into the path of a southbound motorcycle at the Campton Restaurant at about 4:50 p.m.

Green was turning left onto Highway 11 Northwest and her 2016 Toyoto Corolla collided with the motorcycle driven by 19-year-old Mason Knight of Covington.

Knight was taken to Piedmont Walton Hospital. Neither Green nor her passenger were injured.

Green was cited for failure to yield while entering the roadway. Knight was cited for driving without a motorcycle license.

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office said the highway was closed while the crash was cleared.
