VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - An Alcorn State University associate professor riding his motorcycle over the weekend was killed by a teenage driver.

The Vicksburg Post reports (https://bit.ly/1Pq2H8o ) Dr. Noland Boyd was apparently struck from behind by a car driven by 17-year-old Kevin Williams Jr., also of Vicksburg. The accident happened about 12:30 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 61 South.

Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey says the 50-year-old Boyd was declared dead at the scene. Police say Boyd was ejected and landed in the median. Accident reconstruction specialists with the Mississippi Highway Patrol were on scene Monday.
