CORNERSVILLE, Tenn. -

Two people were killed in a multi-vehicle, chain reaction crash on Interstate 65 in Marshall County early Thursday morning.

Medics responded to the scene in the southbound lanes just north of the Lynnville Highway exit in Cornersville shortly after 1 a.m.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a Ford Taurus was stopped, with no lights on, straddling the center lane of I-65 South near mile marker 30.

A semi approached and its driver swerved to miss the vehicle, but his trailer clipped the car.

Another big rig could not avoid a collision and rear-ended the Taurus.  The Taurus's driver, Derick Bostick, 56, of Wisconsin, was outside his vehicle at the time, was struck and killed.

The driver of a fourth vehicle, a Chrysler sedan, swerved to avoid the crash but lost control, hitting the trailer of the first semi truck.

The car's driver, Emily Macon, 20, of Bethpage, was injured.  Her passenger, 19-year-old Dakota Blevins, of Georgia, was killed.

No one was else was injured.

A secondary crash involving three tractor trailers occurred in the traffic backup, about a mile north of the first crash site.

A truck driver failed to stop and rear-ended a second semi, forcing that driver into a third big rig. The tractor trailer semi lost fuel, which had to be cleaned up.

Traffic was diverted off the interstate at exit 32 and onto to Mooresville Highway.

The interstate reopened around 10 a.m.
