A motorcyclist was killed Thursday evening in a crash on Columbia Road.
John Paul Heilig, 52, of Jasper, Ga., was killed when his motorcycle collided with an SUV driven by Spencer Hughes, 50, of Appling, said Columbia County Sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris in an email.
Heilig was driving his 2001 Kawasaki motorcycle east on Columbia Road just after 6 p.m. when he turned left onto William Few Parkway in front of Hughes’ westbound 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe, Morris said.
Heilig was killed on impact and pronounced dead at the scene by Columbia County Deputy Coroner Harriett Garrison.
No charges will be filed, Morris said.
