A motorcyclist died in a West Knox County crash Tuesday evening on Bob Gray Road near Lovell Road.
The Knox County Sheriff's Office says 27-year-old Brian Burns of Knoxville was pronounced dead at the scene.
Neighbors say it's been a dangerous area for a while.
"With a truck and trailer, when I back my trailer up, I actually back out onto Lovell Road. In order for me to back my trailer in here, I have to cross four lanes of traffic, so it's not safe. I've been bringing up issues about this. They finally just posted that speed limit sign about three or four weeks ago," said Mike Rifenberrick.
Authorities are still investigating the incident.
