TWRA INVESTIGATING DEATH OF MAN AFTER DIRT BIKE ACCIDENT

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) officers say a man was found dead yesterday in the Prentice Cooper Wildlife Management Area.

A person on a motorcycle found 47-year-old Robert Micah Boaz of Catoosa County and what appeared to be a dirt bike crash off Sulphur Branch Road.

The motorcyclist called 911 and then flagged down a TWRA employee who attempted to save Boaz but was unsuccessful.

Boaz was wearing a helmet when he was found.

His body has been taken to the Nashville Medical Examiner’s Office.

The investigation is ongoing.
