A local father of four lost his life over the weekend in an off-road motorcycle accident.

McMinnville resident Doug Bullington, 29, died Saturday from injuries sustained in a dirt bike crash near Sewanee.

According to family members, Mr. Bullington was on a group ride with friends from work at Franklin State Forest, a Tennessee State Park located in Franklin and Marion counties. The remote park is known for its off-road trails which are commonly used for ATVs, horseback riding and mountain biking.

Mr. Bullington reportedly suffered his fatal injuries when his dirt bike left the trail and hit a tree.

A member of Central Church of Christ, Mr. Bullington worked at Nissan in Smyrna. He is survived by a wife and four young children. Funeral service was Tuesday at Central Church of Christ.

An account has been set up for wife Emily Newby Bullington and their children for anyone who would like to contribute financially. The account is at Homeland Community Bank, 900 N. Chancery Street.

Obituary information for Mr. Bullington is available on 2A.
