A 57-year-old man was killed in a motorcycle accident last week in Limestone County, Alabama. He was a resident of Cullen and had just purchased the motorcycle that day. He was driving on an Interstate 65 offramp at the time of the accident.
According to Alabama State Trooper reports, the accident occurred at approximately 4:15 p.m. at the southbound Interstate 65 on-ramp from Interstate 565.
“He was coming off of the ramp, lost control of the motorcycle, hit the guard rail and was ejected from the motorcycle,” West said.
He was wearing a motorcycle helmet. He fell about 20 feet after leaving the motorcycle. He died at the scene of the accident. The Alabama State Troopers are still investigating the accident. No other vehicles were involved.
