According to the Associated Press, two people died on August 27 when a sedan and a tractor-trailer truck collided in Park City, near the Tennessee-Alabama state line.
The truck accident occurred along U.S. 431/231, about six miles north of the Alabama border. The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) identified the victims as Carl, 86 and Frances, 80, Bauer of Ardmore, Ala.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing, but an accident report said that the Bauer’s car pulled into traffic in front of the tractor-trailer truck. The crash occurred shortly after 4 p.m., and skid marks extended about 30 yards, near the scene of the crash. The speed limit on the highway is 55 mph.
The Bauer’s were driving a Ford 500, which was badly damaged. According to the AP, officials were seen pulling a body from a pond just south of where the accident occurred. The truck driver, from Danville, Ala., was not injured in the crash.
