WARNER ROBINS -- Two people died following a weekend crash between a motorcycle and a car in Peach County, the coroner says.

Stephen Dwayne Allred, 22, of Fort Valley, was killed Saturday night when his westbound motorcycle on the Ga. 49 Bypass crashed into the right side of a car crossing the bypass from Woolfolk Road, said Peach County Corner Kerry Rooks.

Allred, who had a Fort Valley address but lived in Crawford County, was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:15 p.m., Rooks said.

The impact of the motorcycle hitting the car turned the car over, Rooks said.

Joe McLeroy, 70, of Fort Valley, was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia where he later died from his injuries, Rooks said. McLeroy, who also had a Fort Valley address but lived in Crawford County, was pronounced dead at the hospital at 10:58 p.m., Rooks said.

The driver of the car and two other passengers were also taken to The Medical Center with injuries that were not life threatening, Rooks said.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the crash.
