The Gwinnett County Police Department is investigating a Thursday evening wreck in unincorporated Lawrenceville that claimed the lives of three people. 

A release from the police department said the collision occurred at around 7 p.m. on Scenic Highway and Scenic Pines Drive.

A Kia Sorento carrying three passengers was traveling north on Scenic Highway intending to turn left onto Scenic Pines Drive. The driver of a motorcycle, 27, of Snellville, was traveling south on Scenic Highway.

According to the release, the Kia turned left in the path of the motorcycle, and the two vehicles collided. 

The Kia was carrying a woman, 37, of Loganville and her two sons ages 9 and 14. The mother, 14-year-old son and motorcyclist died of their injuries officials said. 

The nine-year-old child was transported to a local hospital. 

Both vehicles were impounded at Gwinnett County Police Department headquarters for investigation.

“At this point, it is still unclear who will be listed as the at-fault driver, as speed is being looked into as a contributing factor,” police officials said.
