On Monday morning, the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office identified William Cunningham as the victim. At about 6:10 Friday evening police were alerted to the crash on Bunker Hill Road in Bluff City.
According to SCSO Public Information Officer Kristen Quon, Cunningham's Yamaha crossed the center line and hit a pickup that was traveling the opposite direction. The driver of the vehicle sustained no injuries while Cunningham was pronounced dead at the scene.
