A Macon man was killed early Tuesday morning when he left Hwy. 41 and was thrown from his motorcycle.

Kevin Anderson, 30, of Macon, was driving north on Hwy. 41 just south of Hill Road when he veered off the road on the left side around 6:30 a.m. Here’s what happened next according to the Monroe County sheriff’s office: the motorcycle then struck a root in the ditch, ejecting Anderson from the motorcycle and flipping it several times. 

A passerby called 911 when they saw the unattended motorcycle lying on the side of Hwy. 41. When deputies arrived they found the wrecked motorcycle and the driver’s body close to the woodline. Anderson was pronounced deceased on scene. 

The accident is under investigation.

According to his Facebook page, Anderson worked at Bass Pro Shop warehouse. Anderson went to Mary Persons and grew up on Reedy Creek Road.
