Fatal truck accident kills motorcyclist

Fatal crashes occur on our roadways in and around Knox County with alarming frequency. Each time a driver gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, a duty of reasonable care is owed to everyone. A tractor-trailer is so large and weighs in the tens of thousands of pounds, meaning that any truck accident could potentially be fatal for others in its path. When a negligent truck driver strikes a motorcycle, it is difficult to speculate the probability for survival – because it is rare.

On August 3, at around 10:00 a.m., a tractor-trailer struck a motorcycle on Highway 129, about three miles from the North Carolina border. The stretch of highway is known as “The Dragon.” Police say the northbound truck crossed over the center lane at a curve and collided with the southbound motorcycle.
