A district attorney said a final report has been expected to be finished soon on an accident involving a Tennessee Highway Patrol officer on Interstate 24 that killed a motorcyclist.

Twelfth Judicial Circuit District Attorney Mike Taylor told the Chattanooga Times Free Press he has been expecting a final report as soon as Tuesday in the April 23 accident near Haletown that killed 66-year-old Jim Garner of Ringgold, Georgia.

Authorities have said Garner's motorcycle collided with a Tennessee Highway Patrol vehicle driven by Trooper Clyde Reeves.
