In a series of unfortunate circumstances, a motorcycle-deer-car collision has left two dead in Lee County.
At approximately 11:00 pm Sunday night, authorities received a 911 call of a motorcycle accident on Lee Road 390.
Two people were found dead at the scene.
Lee County Coroner Bill Harris pronounced 34 year old Kerri Ray of Lanett, and 41 year old Steve Hamby of Opelika, dead at the scene at 11:30 pm from apparent multiple blunt force injuries.
According to reports, Hamby was the lone rider and operator of a motorcycle traveling north on Lee Road 390 along with two other motorcycles.
Ray was a passenger on a motorcycle operated by her husband, 36 year old William Owen Ray.
It appears that all three motorcycles had just passed a vehicle traveling north also when a deer crossed the roadway and was struck by Hamby.
He lost control and began cart wheeling, ejected him from the motorcycle.
The ray's motorcycle then struck Hamby's causing them to lose control and ejecting Kerri Ray.
She landed in the middle of the roadway.
The vehicle that they had just passed then failed to see Ray in the highway and struck her, dragging her several feet.
It is not known whether the initial impact of the accident or the vehicle striking Ray caused her death or a combination of both.
Both Ray's and Hamby's bodies have been sent to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences in Montgomery for autopsies.
All motorcyclists were believed to be wearing helmets at the time of the accident.
Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the accident; however, speed may have contributed to the accident.
The case remains under investigation.
