A 23-year-old Columbus man died today after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a wrecker truck on Miller Road.
Paul Simpson Bloxom IV was pronounced dead of blunt force trauma to the chest at the scene of the 5:45 p.m. accident in the 5400 block of Miller Road, said Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan. No autopsy will be conducted but there will be a blood screen at the crime lab.
Bryan said Bloxom was westbound on a motorcycle when an eastbound wrecker driver attempted a left turn in front of him on the two-lane road. The motorcycle collided with the truck near Tires First.
The accident remains under investigation by the Columbus police department.
