MARTIN, Tenn. — A University of Tennessee at Martin student and a Martin restaurant manager have died in a motorcycle crash.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol says the bodies of computer science major Logan Hughes and Opera House Restaurant manager Jimmy D. Fitzgerald were found Saturday.
Troopers told WPSD-TV in Paducah that Hughes and Fitzgerald were traveling on southbound on Parkers Levee Road when Hughes failed to negotiate a curve.
Troopers say the motorcycle left the roadway, went down an embankment and hit a tree. Hughes and Fitzgerald were thrown from the motorcycle.
Troopers say Hughes was wearing a helmet, but Fitzgerald was not.
