A Rome man was killed in a motorcycle accident on Horseleg Creek Road yesterday evening.  Matthew Sean Warren, age 38 and of a Rosland Drive address, was pronounced dead at Floyd Medical Center just before 6 pm.  His 19-year-old son, Justin Matthew Warren, was injured in the incident.  The pair were reportedly riding their Harley Davidson motorcycles west on Horseleg Creek Road as a woman was backing her Buick out of a driveway she was using as a turn around.  The Warrens could not stop in time and slammed into the rear of the vehicle.  Both were taken by ambulance to Floyd Medical Center.  The younger Warren was released later in the evening.  An investigation into the incident continues.
