CUMMING, Ga. (AP) - Authorities have charged a pickup truck driver with misdemeanor vehicular homicide in a crash that killed a 19-year-old motorcycle rider in metro Atlanta.
 
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/15RWkSf ) Cameron James Fullerton of Cumming was killed Friday afternoon when his motorcycle was struck by a Ford pickup truck attempting to turn into a store parking lot.
 
Karleen Chalker of the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office says Fullerton was thrown from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene. The truck's driver, 34-year-old Jonathan Troy Sorrells, wasn't injured.
 
Sorrells was charged with failure to yield in addition to misdemeanor vehicular homicide. It was unknown Saturday if he had an attorney.
