Interstate 24 westbound just outside Coffee County was closed for several hours Thursday due to a deadly crash.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol says two passenger cars were involved. According to THP, 19-year-old Sebastien Tarin from Manchester and 65-year-old Stanley Peterson from Beechgrove were killed. A third person, 22-year-old Zachary Parsley from Manchester was injured.
Preliminary investigation shows a 2012 Ford Escape driven by Tarin was traveling east on Interstate 24 near mile marker 95 when it left the roadway and continued to cross the median entering the westbound lanes, hitting Peterson’s 2015 Nissan Frontier head-on.
