COLUMBUS — Authorities say an Alabama man has been killed in a weekend motorcycle accident.

Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant tells WCBI-TV in Columbus that the body of 43-year-old Danny Larry Rea Jr. of Ethelsville, Ala., was found Saturday near the top of a ravine just off a county road.

Merchant says Rea was pronounced dead at the scene.

He says it appeared Rea ran off the road and suffered head trauma.

The accident is under investigation.
