The driver of a tractor-trailer hauling logs was killed Thursday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash on Tenn. 57 in Counce just west of the railroad tracks.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol said Stacey L. Ballard, 40, of Sardis, Tennessee, was driving east on the highway when the 18-wheeler veered off the right side of the roadway and overturned.
Alcohol and drugs were not cited as factors and Ballard was wearing a seatbelt, the THP said.
