Thomasville--  A Thomasville man was killed on his way to work Tuesday morning when he hit a truck head on with his motorcycle.

Forty-two-year-old Lawrence Chambers Smith was driving his motorcycle past the intersection at Stephen street and North Boulevard just before 7:00AM.

He collided with a truck driven by 58-year-old Johnny Lee Young head on.

"He was in the motorcycle's lane of travel, when they collided. It was head on collision... He was pulling over, he was gonna cut into the store parking lot. He didn't make it," said Sergeant Ricky Singletary of the Thomasville Police Department.

Smith was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Police say charges could be brought against Young, after further investigation of the crash.
