Tina M. Revel, 24, passed away on Thursday, November 1 when her car collided with a dump truck in Monroe County. Her car drifted into the opposite lane when she turned a corner atop a hill. She crashed into a dump truck driven by Jordan Grey, 26, who was also pulling a trailer.
Highway police say that Revel was not wearing a seatbelt, but that might not have made a difference considering the severity of the crash. Following the collision, Grey struck a utility pole. He was airlifted to the University of Tennessee Medical Center. Grey received a citation but no criminal charges as of yet.
