On November 11, 1972, Oakley was involved in an accident just three blocks from where Duane Allman had his fatal motorcycle accident the year before when he rode his ’67 Triumph motorcycle into a bus.

He initially declined medical treatment, but was later taken to the hospital where he died of cerebral swelling caused by a skull fracture. Berry was just 24 years old.

Berry is buried next to Duane at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon Georgia.
