MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 29-year-old motorcyclist from Kentucky was killed in a crash at the entrance to a landfill in Montgomery County Tuesday morning.

Troopers said Kaleb Waldrop was traveling northbound on a motorcycle, when he crashed into the pick-up truck in “an angle crash” at the entrance to the landfill.
Waldrop, a 29-year-old man from Pembroke, was pronounced dead as a result of his injuries, according to investigators.
All northbound lanes of Guthrie Highway were shut down for several hours Tuesday as part of the investigation, but reopened around noon.
