“We always did this thing where I went like this, and he would hold up the other hand, and that was our little goodbye,” Adams.

Serena held up half a heart. She said that’s how she said goodbye to Dylan before he went on a motorcycle ride with his childhood friend Saturday afternoon.

However, after too much time had passed, Serena started to worry.

“Finally, I checked his location, and it was in the same exact spot so I immediately jumped in my car, and I flew as fast as I could,” Adams said.

Murfreesboro Police said Dylan and his friend crashed into the back of a Tesla on Northwest Broad Street. Dylan’s bike went off into a ditch and up in flames.

“Right above us is the memorial that me and his friends made yesterday. He went doing what he loved. And I know he was on his way home to me, and I wish he made it home, but I am happy he got to do what he loves for the last time,” Adams said.

Adams says Dylan’s friend was taken to the hospital and is recovering from his injuries.

According to a Murfreesboro Police preliminary report, the motorcycle riders may have been speeding and quickly changing lanes; however, at this time, it is still an active investigation.
