HOLT — Two Milton residents died in a Sunday evening motorcycle crash.

At about 6 p.m. Sunday, Charles Sillars, 40, was driving a motorcycle east on U.S. 90 with passenger Jennifer Morris, 40. Both were from Milton.


At about the same time, 21-year-old Gregory Geiger, of Holt, was parked at a stop sign on Wilkerson Bluff Road, the release said.
