A longtime Jones County volunteer firefighter was killed in a motorcycle accident Thursday night.

The Jones County Fire Council said George Miller, 69, died in the crash two miles north of Hwy 84 west on Hwy 529.  

Officials say speed did not seem to be a factor and that Miller's motorcycle apparently drifted onto the shoulder of the road. Officials add it appears Miller's motorcycle flipper over several times.

Miller was part of the Hebron Volunteer Fire Department for approximately 25 years.
