NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash that killed one person and injured two others in a northeast Nashville neighborhood.

According to WKRN-TV (http://bit.ly/1ksLB78), the crashed occurred around 6 p.m. Saturday on Interstate 65 in Madison.

Police say a motorcycle driven by 34-year-old Eric Knight struck a pedestrian, identified as 45-year-old Gregory Crabtree, whose truck had blown a tire. Crabtree was in the roadway picking up a piece of tire tread.

Officials say the impact caused Knight's motorcycle to veer into the shoulder between Crabtree's truck and the guardrail, ejecting Knight and his passenger, 27-year-old Abigail McCormick.

Knight died at the scene. Crabtree and McCormick were both listed in critical condition at local hospitals.
