Motorcyclist killed in Bradley County crash remembered by friends
Spray paint and broken glass mark the area where a 21-year-old motorcyclist died in a crash on No Pone Road in Bradley County.
The crash happened Tuesday afternoon.
Jenkins' love for motorcycles and fast cars is evident when you look at his pictures.
It's something Micheal O'Quinn said the pair bonded over through the years of their friendship.
"Every chance we got, we always met up and went for a ride and had cookouts and stuff," he said.
O'Quinn said he had plans to hang out with Jenkins on Tuesday but he never got that call.
Investigators with Tennessee Highway Patrol wrote in a crash report Jenkins was killed when his motorcycle hit a car turning into a nearby business.
"I am kind of lost, honestly. Because I had just seen him not even 24 hours ago and now he's gone," he added.
As O'Quinn tries to process what happened, he's leaning on the kind of person Jenkins was-- a loyal friend who as cherished his family.
"He was fun to be around, he was goofy and liked to have fun. It didn't matter what time it was or where he was at, he would always try to cheer you up," he said.
A woman driving the other car was also hurt in the crash.
Investigators said they do not plan on filing charges in the crash.
Jenkins' friends are holding a ride to honor his memory Thursday at 10:00 a.m. at 822 25th NW Street, Cleveland, TN.
