Lee County -- An Albany motorcyclist was killed in a crash on U.S. 19 South in Lee County Wednesday afternoon.

 43-year old Gregory Cline was headed south on 19 when a van headed north, turned in front of him at Kinchafoonee Creek Road. 43 year old Alex Romero Blanco was driving the van that turned in front of Cline. Blanco said "I never saw the motorcycle. Really, it was like, that when I stopped. For me, it was just surprise. Really, it was just surprise."
