A Kingsland man died Saturday night when his motorcycle struck the back of a pickup truck south of Woodbine, the Georgia State Patrol said.
About 9:30 p.m., Mark Coulombe, 48, of Kingsland was riding his 2003 Harley-Davidson south on U.S. 17 behind a 1998 Chevrolet pickup truck that Woodbine resident Allison Elise Waye, 25, was driving, the state patrol said.
Waye slowed to make a 45 degree turn onto the Billyville Road cutoff when the motorcycle hit the pickup truck from behind, the state patrol said.
The motorcycle slid 108 feet on the pavement before coming to rest, the state patrol said.
Camden County EMS transported Coulombe to the hospital, but he died of his injuries.
He was wearing an approved helmet, the state patrol said.
