A deadly single car accident on US-127 claimed one man’s life at around 3:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 25.
The vehicle was travelling on US-127 toward Pikeville when it veered off the road into a tree.
Tennessee Highway Patrol Officer Terry Parker said it appeared as though the driver fell asleep and went straight into a yard around the intersection of Kelly Lane and the highway.
The name of the driver has not been released at this time.
