Lowndes County - A Valdosta man was killed while riding his motorcycle Friday afternoon.

64 year-old Alford Williams was driving North on Bemiss Road in Lowndes County near Moody Air Force base around 12:30 PM

Troopers with the Georgia State Patrol say a dodge pick-up truck driven by 59 year-old Edward Dean of Quitman was turning south on Bemiss from the base's north gate.

Williams lost control of his bike as he swerved to avoid to truck, was thrown off and killed.

The Special Collision Reconstruction Team is now investigating.  "They basically came out and make all the measurements, critical speeds, and also timing," says Master Trooper Edward Johnson.

The SCRT Team's investigation will determine if Dean is charged in the accident.

Dean is a veteran who was visiting the base.
