A University of Georgia student died Thursday morning after he was hit by a car on his motorcycle Tuesday afternoon.

Yong Kyu “Kevin” Nam, 23, hit a car backing out of a driveway as he was riding his Suzuki down North Peter Street Tuesday afternoon, Athens-Clarke County Police Public Information Assistant Hilda Sorrow told The Red & Black.

Nam’s helmet came off as he was thrown from his motorcycle, Sorrow said. He was treated for head trauma and put on life support at Athens Regional Medical Center.
