Woman, 63, Dies In Motorcycle Wreck On Dallas Lake Road

Saturday, July 13, 2013

A 63-year-old woman was killed Saturday afternoon in a motorcycle accident near Lake Chickamauga.

At approximately 2:15 p.m., the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office was notified to respond to 1679 Dallas Lake Road on a single-vehicle traffic crash involving a 1996 Harley Davidson motorcycle (three-wheeler).

The driver of the motorcycle, identified as Kathy Mason of Hixson, had been transported to an area hospital by Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services. She later died from the injuries she sustained in the crash.

The traffic investigation revealed she was traveling south on Dallas Hollow and made a right turn to go westbound on Dallas Lake Road.  During the turn the motorcycle went off the roadway on the left side going into a ditch.  The motorcycle traveled through the ditch, hitting a culvert, at which time the driver was ejected from the motorcycle.  The motorcycle went airborne before coming to rest back on its tires.

The investigation is ongoing and will be handled by the HCSO Traffic Division.

When I learned last Wednesday that Chattanooga’s leading hospital, in a ridiculous attempt to be more “family friendly,” planned to disarm its security guards. I was aghast but decided to wait for the proper “incident” to illustrate how stupid members of our “free thought society” can sometimes be. It took exactly one week.
