At around 2:00AM Tuesday, 33-year-old Uriah Allen May died at the scene of a motorcycle wreck. The Colquitt County Corner Vernon Brock said he died on site.

Mr. Brock tell us May, was a father of two kids, and actually headed to work at Utilco electrical maintenance center.

We're told by Georgia State Patrol, Uriah May was headed north on Ellenton Omega Road. He lost control of his bike on Annie Ruth Freeman road and ran into a ditch.

The ditch acted like a spring and shot him high in the air. His body was found only feet away from the wreckage.

They believed low patchy fog played a role in the wreck. His family has been notified and the Baker funeral home will be handling all the arrangements.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
