GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Authorities cited speed as the main factor in a crash that killed two motorcyclists in Hall County.

Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Anthony Coleman tells The Times of Gainesville (http://bit.ly/Wqyw8K ) 33-year-old Derrick Lee Brinkley and 21-year-old Stephinie Diane Tegeder of Gainesville were killed Saturday when Brinkley lost control of the motorcycle they were riding.

Coleman says alcohol may have also been a factor in the crash. He also said Brinkley and Tegeder's bodies were not found right away because of high grass and low visibility in the area.
