Lakeway Area man killed in motorcycle wreck


THE TENNESSEE HIGHWAY PATROL SAYS THAT A LAKEWAY AREA MOTORCYCLIST WAS KILLED IN AN ACCIDENT SATURDAY MORNING ON THE KNOXVILLE HIGHWAY PORTION OF ROAD KNOWN AS "THE DRAGON."

45 YEAR OLD STEVIE FERRELL, OF ROGERSVILLE, SUFFERED FATAL INJURIES WHEN HIS 2007 YAMAHA MOTORCYCLE RAN OFF THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD AND STRUCK A TREE. THE THP NOTES THAT FERRELL WAS THROWN FROM THE BIKE AND HE LANDED 57 FEET FROM IT.

HE WAS WEARING A HELMET. DRUGS OR ALCOHOL ARE NOT THOUGHT TO BE A FACTOR IN THE WRECK. "THE DRAGON" IS A SECTION OF U.S. HIGHWAY 129 THAT HAS 318 CURVES WITHIN AN 11 MILE STRETCH.

It's interesting how these article seem to make a point of mentioning whether the rider was wearing a helmet, but don't bother adding if it would have made a difference.

RIP brother!
