Just after 6 pm on Saturday evening, a tractor-trailer and two Harley Davidson motorcycles were traveling west on I-24 near the 116 mile-marker in Coffee County when a crash occurred.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 20 year-old Chase Everett of Manchester, TN and 21 year-old David Solar of Georgia, were operating motorcycles and attempted to pass a tractor-trailer. During the pass, the motorcycles collided and then Everett’s bike struck the trailer of the 18-wheeler. Solar’s Harley Davidson slid into the median before coming to a controlled rest. The tractor-trailer did not stop and continued traveling on the interstate.
Everett’s motorcycle finally came to rest, but unfortunately the young man died in the accident. No other injuries were reported.
