MONROE - A 30-year-old Monroe man died Monday in a motorcycle-car accident on Hull Road near Albain Road in Monroe County, authorities said.

Brian Gill, who was wearing a helmet, was thrown from his bike. He was pronounced dead at the scene, Monroe County sheriff's deputies said.

Mr. Gill was northbound on Hull at 1:30 p.m. at a high rate of speed when the motorcycle he was riding struck a car driven by Linda McEachern, 57, of Monroe, deputies said.

Ms. McEachern, a rural mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, was southbound on Hull and was turning east into a private driveway at the time of the collision.
