Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins said it appears that Morace was southbound on a black 1981 motorcycle when the motorcycle collided with the front driver’s side of a blue 1990 Ford F-250. The pickup truck was pulling off of Sunplex Drive, he said.
The accident occurred about 9 p.m.
The crash is still under investigation, Elkins said.
A worker at the Moss Point Fire Department on Sunday said officials were not available for comment.
