FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A 21-year-old firefighter died Sept. 21 after he was ejected from his motorcycle while trying to negotiate a curve.

Deputy First Class Andy Ives, a traffic specialist investigator for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, said Jacob Hammond of Cumming was driving a 2016 Harley Davidson XL1200V on Bannister Road shortly after 1 a.m., when the vehicle left the roadway. Hammond was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hammond was a firefighter with the Sandy Springs Fire Department and the sheriff’s office has been in contact with their fire chief.

“The men and women of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office extend their condolences and prayers to the Sandy Springs Fire Department and the Hammond family,” Forsyth Sheriff Ron Freeman said.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Specialist Unit.
