The motorcyclist involved in a crash on Nolensville Pike on November 12 died this morning. Taylor Sherwood, 20, of Clarksville, was traveling north approaching Higgins Street when a BFI garbage truck was attempting to make a left turn. The garbage truck collided with the motorcycle as it was rounding the curve.
Sherwood attempted to brake in time, but lost control of the motorcycle which then traveled underneath the garbage truck. Sherwood was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
Neither driver showed signs of impairment at the scene. Sherwood was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The preliminary contributing factor to the crash appears to be failure to yield on the part of the truck driver.
