Alabama State Troopers have identified Vincent Lee Baker, 20, of Hazel Green as the victim in a two-vehicle crash on Sunday.
Baker was killed when the 2016 Kawasaki motorcycle he was operating collided with a 2012 Ford F-350 on Bobo Section Road five miles north of Hazel Green, troopers said.
Baker was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Ford was not injured.
One man is dead from a motorcycle and vehicle wreck in Hazel Green Sunday evening.
The wreck happened at the intersection of Bobo Section Road and Cornell Road, which is west of Highway 231-431.
HEMSI Chief Operating Officer Dea Calce said they were dispatched at 6:36 p.m.
A State Trooper tells WAAY 31 that a driver and four passengers were heading east on Bobo Section Road. The motocyclist was traveling west on the same street when the two collided.
The motorcycle caught on fire, killing the driver of the bike.

A witness at the scene tells WAAY 31 it looked like the motorcyclist was traveling at a high rate of speed.
