OVERTON COUNTY -- A Cookeville man was fatally injured in a motorcycle crash in Overton County on Friday afternoon, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Donald S. Beck, 45, of S. Creek Road, Cookeville, lost his life in the accident, says a report by Trooper Marty Philpot. Beck was driving a 2007 Yamaha motorcycle north on Highway 135 when he crashed into an SUV traveling the other way. It happened about 3:30 p.m. March 19, the report says.

The other vehicle was a 1999 Ford Explorer. The driver, Michella Choate, 30, of Hilham, was injured in the crash, the trooper's report says. The report says Beck "failed to negotiate a curve" in the highway and veered on the wrong side of the road just before hitting the SUV head-on. Beck was using a helmet, the trooper noted in the report. Troopers Stanley Roberts and Lt. Jimmy Beaty also investigated the accident.

Was the accident on Hwy 136 or Hwy 135. The papers say it was on Hwy 135, but that's Jackson Co. not Overton County. Regardless, it's a sad thing and my heart goes out to his family.

Hey I was an old friend of Don's, could you link a google map location of the spot the crash happened? I have been trying to find exactly where but the papers say 135, didn't know it was on 136 until I read this.

What a boring stretch of highway. I mean its curvy but its flat,right? Didn't someone already crash out there, lose a leg and then die some years back?
He died 4 years ago the 19th, and no its not boring nor flat, keep riding North and you go through standing stone and is really fun, but he was coming home from work.

Fell asleep, had a heart attack? What would make a rather young person crash into a vehicle going the other way? It just doesn't make sense.
