Motorcyclist Killed in Crash with 18-Wheeler at 3rd and Mitchell in Memphis, TN
Memphis, TN — February 10, 2022, a motorcyclist died in a collision with a tractor-trailer on 3rd Street in southwest Memphis.
Authorities released few preliminary details about the accident but said it occurred shortly after 1:00 a.m. at 3rd Street and Mitchell Road. The cause and circumstances of the crash aren't clear but the motorcyclist suffered fatal injuries and the truck driver was reportedly unhurt.
The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.
It's not clear what happened here yet aside from two vehicles colliding at an intersection, but I think most people would agree that the loss of someone's life is more than enough reason to learn every available detail. Whether a full and careful investigation reveals a simple explanation or a more complex one, the people who lost a loved one deserve to know no stone was left unturned. Hopefully Memphis authorities agree and make sure they have the whole story before all is said and done.
