Posted: Updated:
RHEA COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

David L. McKinney Jr., 49 was killed Friday night when the motorcycle he was driving went off Highway 30 down Dayton Mountain. 

Investigators say McKinney was traveling eastbound when he crossed the double yellow line to pass a tractor trailer and a pickup truck. 

Approaching a curve and a vehicle traveling towards him, McKinney came back into the eastbound lane.

The THP report says McKinney ran off the road into a ditch where the motorcycle hit an embankment, went airborne, and then came to rest in the thicket of tree line to the right of the roadway.
