A 28-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a single vehicle accident at the Bybee Branch Road intersection in Warren County early Friday morning.
Authorities reported the accident involving Tomas Kaska occurred just after 12:30 a.m.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol reported Kaska was traveling northbound on Spring Valley Road approaching the Bybee Branch Road intersection.

Officials said Kaska's helmet was not secured at the time of the accident and came off before he stuck his head on a decorative stone landscaping wall.
