NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A motorcyclist is dead after crashing on the West End.

The accident was reported by a passerby who saw the scene at Blakemore Avenue and Natchez Trace at around 2 a.m. A male was found dead in the roadway. The investigation leads Metro police to believe the motorcyclist left the roadway and hit the curb.

FOX 17 News photographer captured visuals of ice on the ground and a salt truck out covering that. Also, a water main break was just located at a residence on Blakemore Ave. near the accident scene.

Police say the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.

That portion of Blakemore Ave. is now closed.
