Colton Rood, the son of wrestling legend Rick Rude was killed following injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on Floyd Springs Road in Rome, Georgia last Saturday afternoon, according to a statement by Chief Deputy Coroner Gene Proctor to The Rome News Tribune.

According to police officer Ron Hunton, Rood was traveling south on a 2014 Yamaha 950 when a 2010 silver Toyota Camry drove into his patch around 2:50. The driver was going north and trying to turn left into a driveway. She was charged with misdemeanor vehicular homicide and failure to yield. She’s in jail on a $2,600 bond.

Hunton said at the time: “We ask drivers to be wary. It is the holiday weekend and more cars and motorcycles are on the road.”

Rood’s body will be sent to the GBI Crime Lab for an autopsy, which Proctor said is a routine “fact-finding” procedure when a driver is charged with a crime.
