The injuries that killed Oxford motorcyclist Brandon Key in a traffic accident Sunday afternoon in Cleburne County occurred despite the fact that Key was wearing a helmet, said Cleburne County Coroner Rudy Rooks.

The accident occurred at 1:10 p.m. (not a.m., as a previous report had stated) when Key's motorcycle entered a curve on Alabama 281 three miles north of Cheaha State Park, crossed the center line and struck the left front corner of a camper trailer being pulled by a Ford pickup.

"A helmet just protects your head," Rooks said, noting that Key sustained other injuries due to the nature of the impact.

Key, 20, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a report from Alabama State Trooper Chad Joiner.
