A motorcyclist died about 2:50 p.m. Sunday after his motorcycle collided with a Cadillac pulling onto Lonesome Pine Trail (Tenn. Rt. 70N) from Albany Road, Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper David Good said in a report.

Killed was Derrick R. Malone, 28, of Jefferson City.

The driver of the car, 77-year-old Phil T. Carter, of Grandview Lane off Mt. Carmel Road, was northbound on Albany Road when the collision occurred.

Malone and another motorcyclist, 18-year-old Corey A. Turner, of Bulls Gap, were southbound on Lonesome Pine Trail, also known as the Rogersville Road, when Carter attempted to turn left into the northbound lane from Albany Lane.

Malone's Honda motorcycle struck the driver's side front of Carter's 2004 Cadillac

Malone was going at a high rate of speed when he struck the car, said Harold Williamson, chief of the Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department.

Turner lost control of the Honda CR9 motorcycle he was riding, and it "traveled off the right side of the roadway onto the shoulder of [Lonesome Pine Trail]," the report said.

Carter "was halfway across the roadway" when his car was struck by the motorcycle, Williamson said.

Malone was thrown about 50 yards. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

Turner was also ejected from his motorcycle. He suffered scrapes and bruises and initially refused treatment, Williamson said.

Carter suffered injuries to his left hand and arm and also initially refused treatment, Williamson said.

Malone and Turner were both wearing helmets. The posted speed on Lonesome Pine Trail is 30 mph.

Safety restraints would not have made a difference in the outcome of the crash, Good said in the report.

The crash remains under investigation. Charges are pending, the report said.

The roadway in the area of the crash was closed at least four hours while the THP reconstructed the crash, Williamson said.

In addition to the THP and EMS, responding to the crash scene were members of the Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department, the Greene County Sheriff's Department, and Greene County constables.

The wreck scene was about seven miles from Greeneville.

Staff Writer O.J. Early contributed to this report.
