Jeremy Chris, a 45-year-old Atlanta resident, was killed in a motorcycle crash May 16 at 276th Street and Devaney Road in Hamilton County near Arcadia.

The crash is still under investigation and no charges have been filed as of press time. The truck driver’s name has not yet been released by HCSO.
