JACKSON, Tenn. - The investigation into a Wednesday motorcycle wreck in east Jackson that killed a man is underway by Jackson police.

The crash involving the motorcycle and a pickup truck happened at the intersection of North Parkway and Royal Street.

Investigators say around 3 p.m., Timothy Wood, 47, was on his motorcycle headed east on North Parkway when a truck pulled out in front of him. Wood collided with the driver's side of the truck and sustained fatal injuries.

Police believe another truck waiting to pull into the parking lot the truck was leaving may have blocked the view of the oncoming motorcycle.

No charges have been filed, as of Thursday.
