One man is dead after an early morning wreck in Limestone County.

Jonathan Adam Cook, 31, of Athens was killed when his motorcycle collided with a truck on Highway 72 near the corner of Seven Mile Post around 5:15a.m.

Cook was pronounced dead at the scene. A female driver was taken to Athens-Limestone Hospital for possible minor injuries following the wreck.

The Limestone County Sheriff's Office and Athens Police managed traffic since there was only enough room for one lane of traffic to flow in one direction.

The wreck is under investigation.
