A Danielsville man was killed in a motorcycle accident on Nowhere Road Aug. 1. Robert Maddox, 62, died in a single-vehicle wreck at approximately 11:26 p.m. about .2 miles north of Neese-Commerce Road.
According to a spokesperson with the Athens Post of the Georgia State Patrol, Maddox lost control of his northbound Harley Davidson and overturned onto the vehicle’s left side as it continued north.
“Mr. Maddox separated from his motorcycle and they both came to uncontrolled rests in the northbound lane,” wrote the patrolman. “Mr. Maddox sustained severe head trauma and later (approximately 0315 hours) died from that injury. Mr. Maddox was wearing a non-DOT approved helmet.”
According to Madison County coroner Julie Phillips, there were skid marks at the scene and it's possible that an animal crossed Maddox’s path.
