Shannon Johnson Killed in a Motorcycle Crash on Interstate 81 in Green County, Tennessee  

Greeneville, TN — A man died after his motorcycle was cut off by a semi-truck. The incident happened Tuesday along Van Hill Road, near the intersection of Interstate 81.

According to reports, Shannon Johnson was riding his motorcycle along Van Hill Road when a tractor-trailer turned in front of him. Johnson’s motorcycle became lodged beneath the semi-truck.

Johnson died Wednesday at the Johnson City Medical Center.

No additional details have been provided.

Thoughts on semi-trucks and motorcycle collisions

Not seeing the motorcycle is the most common excuse we hear when prosecuting motorcycle accident claims. People think that because motorcycles are small and not as obvious as cars, not seeing them is an acceptable excuse. It isn’t. There is no excuse for not taking the time to analyze all your surroundings and make a safe turn.

Those responsible for the death of this innocent man must be held accountable. The family deserves answers and justice for a loved one being killed in such a preventable accident.
