Metro Police say speed may have been a factor in the motorcycle crash Wednesday night that killed a Mt. Juliet man.
James L. Allen, 52, was riding his 2008 Harley Davidson southbound on Old Hickory Boulevard at 8:30 p.m. when witnesses reported he failed to negotiate a curve at the intersection of Bridgeway Avenue, police said. He was wearing a helmet.
No one else was involved in the crash.
This is the second fatal single-vehicle motorcycle crash in recent weeks that police say was speed-related.
In the morning hours of May 27, Perry Dickerson of Ashland City was attempting to exit Interstate 65 at the Old Hickory Boulevard exit when he too lost control of his motorcycle.
