1 dead, 1 injured after motorcycle wreck outside Masters Cinema

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - The Richmond County Coroner's Office and Sheriff's Office have confirmed one person is dead in a motorcycle wreck at the Masters Cinema on Washington Road.

Coroner Mark Bowen has now confirmed the deceased victim as Regina Lynn Allen, 44, from Grovetown.

The driver of a newly-purchased 2013 Harley Davidson was traveling south in the parking lot at a high rate of speed from the east side of Hooters, said Sgt. Shane McDaniel with the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Investigation revealed the driver lost control and struck the right side of a 2011 Toyota Tundra that was parked facing the theater, McDaniel said.

Allen was pronounced dead at 9:40 p.m, Bowen said. The male driver was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center in unknown condition, McDaniel said.

Allen will be sent to GBI Lab Atlanta for an autopsy. Alcohol is a possible contributing factor in the incident, Bowen said.
