Fiery crash claims one

ANDERSON COUNTY (KLTV) - One person is dead following a three car crash.

Troopers say a driver was trying to make a left turn on Hwy. 289 near CR 155 when their car was hit from behind.

The impact of that crash sent the car into the path of an oncoming tractor trailer. The tractor trailer went into a ditch; the car caught fire.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead on the scene. Their body has been transported to Southwest Forsenic for identification and an autopsy.
