A Columbus man was killed Thursday night in a multi-vehicle crash in the 21000 block of U.S. Highway East in Phenix City.
Charles Daniel Hillhouse, 22, of Columbus, GA. was riding a 1996 Honda CB750 motorcycle the wrong way on Highway 280 when he collided with at least three vehicles, said Lee County Coroner Bill Harris.
He was pronounced dead at 9:25 p.m. from massive blunt force trauma.
Harris said Hillhouse was leaving Greer Bar and Grill at 20300 U.S. Highway 280 East. No one else involved in the crash was injured.
Hillhouse was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, the coroner said. Toxicology is being performed to determine if alcohol was a factor.
The wreck remains under investigation by the Alabama State Troopers and the Lee County Coroner’s Office. No autopsy is planned.
