Johnson County - A Greenwood man was killed Saturday night in a motorcycle accident.

A passerby found 51-year-old Albert Pfeiffer in a yard in the 5700 block of Travis Road shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday. Pfeiffer's Harley-Davidson motorcycle was found nearby with its lights illuminated.

An investigation showed the motorcycle had been traveling west on Travis Road when it left the roadway and struck a pole. The cause of the crash was not immediately determined.

A paramedic determined Pfeiffer was dead at the scene, which was a short distance from the victim's home. Police say he was not wearing a safety helmet and received apparent head injuries.

Deputies and firefighters began a search for a possible second victim of the crash after finding a pair of shoes in the yard near the victim. However, further investigation failed to locate another victim.
