SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man lost his life and three other people — including two minors — were hurt after a driver failed to stop behind two other vehicles in Sumner County on Saturday.
According to Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP), a 2006 Dodge Ram was stopped on Highway 25 while the driver waited to turn left onto Rock Springs Road.
There was also a Chrysler 300 stopped behind the 2006 Dodge, officials said.
However, the driver of a 2022 Dodge Ram that was approaching the other two vehicles from behind failed to stop, so the 2022 Dodge rear-ended the Chrysler, which was forced into the 2006 Dodge, THP reported.
The passenger in the Chrysler — identified by authorities as 66-year-old Mark Neely of Tennessee — died following the collision.
There were also three people injured in the crash, including the 67-year-old Tennessee woman driving the Chrysler, as well as the 14-year-old girl and the 10-year-old boy who were passengers in the 2006 Dodge, THP said.
