The driver of a motorcycle was killed Friday after his vehicle slammed into the side of a tractor trailer on Belair Road.

 

A Martinez man died Friday after losing control of his motorcycle and hitting a tractor trailer.

Dalton Lee Brown, 20, of North Belair Road, was driving his motorcycle west on Columbia Road near Belair Road when he lost control, according to Columbia County Sheriff’s Deputy David Herrity. The motorcycle crossed a turn lane and an oncoming lane of traffic before hitting the rear tires of an eastbound Maner Building Supply Co. tractor trailer.

Brown was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 4:45 p.m., according to Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins.

The truck driver, James Roundtree, wasn’t injured.
