NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A motorcyclist was killed in a crash Thursday evening in Antioch and the driver responsible for the crash received numerous citations.
Metro police said the motorcyclist, identified as 41-year-old Shannon McComb of Murfreesboro, was traveling westbound on Lavergne Couchville Pike near Murfreesboro Pike at around 7 p.m. when he crashed into the rear right side of a Chevrolet pickup truck as it was turning left at the intersection.
