Fatal Forsyth County motorcycle collision claims the life of Timothy Cantrell – Obituary

In a tragic incident unfolding on Thursday, a 53-year-old individual, Timothy Cantrell, lost his life in a devastating motorcycle collision within Forsyth County. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office revealed this unfortunate news on Friday, shedding light on the grim details of the incident.

The calamity transpired at the intersection of Waldrip Road and State Road 369, at approximately 8:45 p.m. It was here that a Hyundai Sonata, positioned to make a left turn onto SR 369, made a fatal error by failing to yield to an oncoming Suzuki motorcycle, resulting in a harrowing collision.

Timothy Cantrell, hailing from Cleveland, was identified as the rider of the ill-fated Suzuki. He was promptly transported to a nearby medical facility, but tragically, his condition took a dire turn for the worse, and he was pronounced deceased shortly after his arrival.

The operator of the Hyundai, a 35-year-old named Colt Spencer from Gainesville, emerged from the accident with minor injuries. After receiving medical attention at a local hospital, it became evident that Spencer was operating his vehicle under the influence of multiple substances during the incident.

Medical staff subsequently cleared Colt Spencer, and law enforcement wasted no time in taking him into custody. He now faces a series of grave charges, including suspicion of first-degree homicide by vehicle, driving under the influence, and failure to yield while turning left. Colt Spencer currently finds himself behind bars in the Forsyth County Jail, awaiting the legal proceedings that lie ahead.
