A 31-year-old Michie man was flown to Regional One in Memphis for treatment after his vehicle rear-ended a tractor-trailer loaded with logs Wednesday, the Tennessee Highway Patrol said.
According to a THP report, Jesse Harrison was driving a 2008 GMC pickup truck east on Tenn. 57 in Hardin County when the logs penetrated the passenger compartment of his vehicle in a collision reported at around 7:30 p.m.
The tractor-trailer left the scene.
The report says it’s unknown if Harrison was wearing a seat belt, and alcohol or drugs were not factors on his part.
The THP said Thursday morning that the crash is still under investigation.
