MARYVILLE (WATE) - A Georgia motorcyclist is dead after wrecking Saturday evening on The Dragon at mile marker 10.

Patrick Noll, 46 of Dallas, Ga., passed a slower motorcyclist shortly after 7:00 p.m., according to the Blount County Sheriff's Department. His rear wheel locked, causing the motorcycle to skid.

Noll was ejected from the motorcycle and hit a tree. The motorcycle continued to roll down the embankment and also hit a tree.

Noll was pronounced dead at Blount Memorial Hospital. Deputies say he was wearing a helmet.

The Dragon is an area of U.S. Highway 129 frequented by motorcyclists due to its high number of curves.
