Motorcycle Rider KilledSubmitted by Bill Mitchell on March 16, 2008 - 8:26pm. News
A motorcycle rider was killed Sunday evening when he was trapped under a cargo trailer being towed on I-24.
Witnesses say the biker was westbound about 6:30 near the Brown's Ferry road exit when he was hit by the trailer carrying a racecar that was being towed eastbound.
It had broken loose and crossed the median into the on-coming lane of traffic where it hit the biker, who was trapped under the wreckage for about 20 minutes.
He was rushed to Erlanger by EMS where he died.
His name has not been released.
Westbound traffic was backed up for more than three hours.
