Motorcyclist Is Critical Following Crash

A Greeneville man was in critical condition this morning at the Johnson City Medical Center following an accident involving a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and a Ford F-150 pickup truck Thursday evening.

The wreck occurred just after 6 p.m. on State Route 107 (the Erwin Highway) near the Quick Stop #6 BP gas station and convenience center.

The motorcycle operator, Frankie Moore, of Longwood Lane, sustained head trauma and was transported to the JCMC by Wings Air Rescue.

A hospital spokesperson confirmed that Moore was listed in critical condition this morning.

Moore's passenger, Kathy Smith, of Cypress Street, was also airlifted by Wings for treatment of multiple fractures.

Smith was listed in stable condition this morning in the surgical unit.

Details about the cause of the accident and the name of the truck's driver have not yet been released.

Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services Director Robert Sayne said, however, that no other patients were transported by the ambulance service for treatment of injuries.

The Tusculum Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) responded to the scene.

Tusculum VFD Chief Stephen Harris said that the motorcycle was traveling toward Greeneville and the truck was heading toward Erwin.

The truck was apparently attempting to make a left turn into the convenience center when the collision occurred.

An eyewitness, John Nunes, told The Greeneville Sun that traffic was directed to u-turn at the gas station for a time before later being re-routed, one lane at a time, through the parking lot.

Nunes indicated that both the motorcycle and the dark-green, full-sized pickup truck sustained significant damage.

Nunes said the truck's front end was "smashed in" and that "the bike was crushed, it was just twisted."
