A man killed Sunday evening in a motorcycle wreck has been identified as Russell Casey Boyles of Martinez.

According to Richmond County Deputy Coroner Johnny McDonald, Boyles, 24, was traveling east on Skinner Mill Road about 8:30 p.m. when his 2007 Suzuki motorcycle crossed the double yellow line and struck a 2011 Toyota Camry.

The motorcycle then hit a sound barrier wall on the right shoulder of the road.

Boyles was ejected from the motorcycle and died of blunt force trauma.

The driver of the Camry was not injured.

McDonald said the motorcyclist’s blood is being tested to determine whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.
