Motorcycle crash claims the life of a Columbia man
A Columbia man died after his motorcycle collided with a pick-up truck Thursday night.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said 25-year-old David Auxier was driving a 2006 Suzuki GSX at excessive speeds on Route B south of East Brown Station Road. Around 8:50, his cycle ran into the rear of a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado driven by Daysi Hawkins, also of Columbia.
Auxier later died at a Columbia hospital. Hawkins suffered minor injuries.
