Five bikers found dead at event
Three men and two women were found in the RV at the Clarksville Speedway about noon and there was no sign of foul play, Clarksville police spokesman Jim Knoll said.
The head of Bikers Who Care, the charity that organized the event, said he heard someone shouting that all of the people in the trailer were dead. The event festivities came to an abrupt halt as ambulances arrived.
“This is a tragic accident,” Bill Langford said. “It’s horrible.”…
Langford said it appears a small storage hatch on the RV did not close properly, allowing fumes from the generator to leak inside the vehicle.
The bikers who found the bodies were taken to a hospital after feeling dizzy and light-headed, Langford said. They all had high amounts of carbon monoxide in their systems, he said.
