May 10-- A 39-year-old Brentwood, Tennessee man was seriously injured when his motorcycle collided with a vehicle going the wrong way on a divided four-lane highway about four miles east of Savannah, authorities said.
The driver of the 1979 Honda motorcycle, Aaron P. Fogg, was transported by ambulance to Hardin Medical Center following the crash around noon today. It was expected he would be airlifted to another hospital for further treatment.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Fogg was westbound on U.S. 64 and collided with a 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck operated by Joannie L. Weirich, 61, of Savannah.
The pickup was traveling east in the westbound lane when impact with the motorcycle was made, the THP said.
A reporter at the scene saw that the pickup had damage to its passenger side panels and low on the windshield near the radio antenna. It also had a flat rear tire on the passenger side.
The THP said Weirich was not injured and was wearing a seat belt. A 3-year-old passenger in her vehicle was also wearing a seat belt, but the preliminary crash report does not note if the girl was hurt. Alcohol was not a factor in the collision on Weirich’s part, and charges against her are pending.
