Another motorcyclist has lost his life on Highway 53 near the Ball Metal Recycling Plant in Shannon, less than a week after a similar fatal crash.
The incident happened on Thursday morning, when a pickup truck turned left in front of a Harley Davidson that was heading north on 53, at the intersection of Shannon Circle.
The motorcyclist, identified as 49-year-old Bradley Marc Sharpe, died from the impact.
This follows the death of 26-year-old Jonathan Dunn of Rome, who was riding a Suzuki GSX last Friday evening. He collided with a Chevy Silverado that tried to cross Highway 53 at Shannon Road.
