One person is dead and three others injured following a motorcycle accident in Monroe County.

It happened Saturday afternoon, just before 4:00 p.m. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Robert N. Tittenhofer of Middleburg, Florida was heading west on State Highway 165, also known as the Cherohala Skyway.

The THP report says Tittenhofer's Honda CBR1000 motorcycle veered into the eastbound lane while traveling into a right-hand curve. It nicked a 2004 Harley-Davidson operated by Lawrence E. Kinard Jr. of Montross, Virginia.

Tittenhofer then sideswiped a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan ridden by King David Stewart of Marshall, Virginia before crashing head-on into a 2006 Harley-Davidson. That rider, Charles E. Poles Jr., was injured along with Stewart and Kinard. Tittenhofer was killed.

All four riders were wearing helmets at the time of the accident.
