A Decherd man operating a motorcycle was killed in four-vehicle collision about 3:25 p.m. Tuesday on Highway 127.
Tennessee Highway Patrol reports identified the man as Aulton O. Richardson, 48, of Decherd.
Mr. Richardson was traveling north on Highway 127 and was approaching traffic that was slowing down. Reports said he was unable to stop.
The motorcycle made its way past a Kia Sedona, driven by Devin M. McChessney, 26, of Hillsboro, and clipped the back end of a Nissan Frontier, driven by Nina D. Rodriquez, 33, of Winchester, which was directly in front of the McChessney vehicle.
A Ford Ranger, driven by David G. Bush, 63, of Georgetown, Tennessee, was going south in the opposite direction, and the vehicle and the motorcycle collided.
