I have heard his name, but I am afraid to say until his name is released...I'm sorry. The news is very widespread so if you have not heard by now, it is probably not someone you know. Prayers to you.

Well I live near where the wreck happened and I know it has to be a really bad wreck for them to close off I think it was like 3 redlights. I wasnt able to see much but I could tell it was serious. I feel for the person on the motorcycle and the man driving the big truck.

I am not going to say any names but I do know the man who was killed in the accident. And it is a very rough time for those who knew and loved him.

Randii, Is it true this was the result of a police chase? If so, I thought it was illegal to be chasing people.

I live in New Tazewell and I heard that it was really bad. And no the cops are not supposed to pursue a suspect and speeds over ninety miles an hour. I feel for all that is involved in this. Not only the motorcycle drivers family, but also for the truck he hit. You know this will stick with him forever. Even though it is not his fault. Please everyone pray for the families of all involved.

I agree everyone needs to pray for all involved, bruce and his family, the truck driver, and the officers involved. Everyone speculates this or that... a life was lost regardless of how and why prayers will be needed for everyone involved.

How can you be so cold and callous. No matter what he may or may not have been guilty of , he had a soul and loved ones that are hurting. Be kind to one another,, I want our town drug free as well, but to be glad someone had to die is a vicious thing to express. May God have mercy on you.
