A South Roxana man was killed in a motorcycle accident Wednesday morning after colliding with a tractor-trailer in Granite City. Police say 44-year-old Jeffrey Pride was pronounced dead shortly after 6am. The accident took place near the intersection of Missouri Avenue and Konzen Court.
That is an intersection with no traffic light. Police say that is an industrial area, about a mile south of Route 3. The truck was apparently making a left turn from Konzen Court to go north on Missouri Avenue, crossing the path of Pride, who was in the southbound lane. It is unknown if any charges will be filed, and the accident remains under investigation.
