A Goldsboro man was killed Friday night when he lost control of his motorcycle on Sandhill Drive near U.S. 13 South.

Andy Jay Bunn, 22, of Runnel Place, was traveling on Sandhill Drive at 6:44 p.m. just four miles southwest of Country Run Lane when he ran off the road and hit a tree, Highway Patrol officials said.

Bunn died at the scene. No other vehicles were involved, officials said.

Trooper Rodrick Murphy is investigating the case and was unavailable for comment Saturday. It remains unclear if alcohol, speed, road conditions, vehicle malfunctions or any other factors contributed to the crash.

Bunn's death marked the 20th vehicle-related fatality of the year.
