Saltillo man in one-vehicle crash dies

OCT. 17 – A Hardin County man died Monday following a single-vehicle crash on Saltillo Road.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Joseph Wilson, 55, of Saltillo, was driving north when his vehicle veered off the right side of the roadway and struck an embankment that morning. He was wearing a seat belt and alcohol or drugs were not indicated as factors.

It is unclear if the crash was the cause of Wilson’s death.
