An Etowah County man was killed Tuesday in a crash involving a motorcycle and an 18-wheeler on Alabama Highway 211 at the Interstate 59 Exit 188 ramp, according to Coroner London Pearce.

Danny Ray Vasser, 63, of Attalla, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, Pearce said. Vasser was traveling on Alabama 211 on a 2001 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, headed toward Noccalula Falls, when the crash happened 1 mile north of Gadsden, near Reece City.

Pearce said the 18-wheeler, a 2014 Volvo, was coming off that interstate at the ramp when the collision occurred.

Alabama State Troopers continue to investigate.
