A 42-year-old Harriman man was killed in a Saturday morning motorcycle wreck in Monroe County.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Michael W. Hileman was headed north on State Hwy. 322 in Vonore while riding a 1997 Harley Davidson.

“For unknown reasons, the vehicle crossed the double-yellow center line and exited the left side of the roadway,” the report said.

No other details about the accident were given.

The report said that although Hileman was wearing a helmet, it was “not DOT approved,” meaning it doesn’t meet basic impact standards
