One person was injured and another killed in a motorcycle wreck on the Cherohala Skyway last week.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a Victory Cross Country motorcycle was traveling east on Highway 165 Wednesday afternoon when the back tire reportedly “fell off the roadway” while it was taking a curve.

At that point, the driver reportedly lost control of the bike and “laid the motorcycle down as the rear passenger came into contact wth the guardrail.”

As a result of the single vehicle wreck, the driver from Pensacola, Florida, was injured and the passenger from Panama City, Florida, was killed.

Both were reportedly wearing helmets.
