On 17 May 2021 at 1:18 PM, the Falls Township Police Department (FTPD) responded to a report of a one unit motorcycle crash on Millcreek Road at Willow Drive. Responding officers found the operator, Blake Anthony Sims (24 years old, from Marianna Florida) deceased at the scene, according to Falls Police Chief Nelson Whitney. A witness stated that Sims was traveling at an “extremely” high rate of speed when his hat flew off. Sims looked back, presumably at his hat, and lost control of the motorcycle. The motorcycle only had 11 miles on it.
