Three people died over the weekend in a
tractor-trailer crash in Tennessee. Police say the three-truck accident occurred Saturday night
on State Highway 52 in Macon County near Westside Elementary School. According
to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a tractor-trailer lost control while
driving in heavy rain, causing it’s trailer to swing out as it slid
into the oncoming lane. A pickup truck slid underneath the trailer, ripping
off the cab. A second pickup truck then hit the rear of the trailer. The
tractor-trailer overturned and came to rest in a deep ravine.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol reports three people died in the crash and
were pronounced deceased at the scene. The THP says it is unclear what
vehicles the victims were riding in at this time, but a thorough investigation
is ongoing. None of the identities have been released.
