One person was killed and traffic along Highway 41-A was snarled for some time Thursday morning following a three-vehicle crash.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, around 6 a.m. Davy T. Wall, 26, of Tullahoma was traveling northbound on Highway 41A in Moore County when his 2000 Honda Accord veered across the turn lane and into the south bound lane of traffic. He then attempted to correct and veered back into the northbound lane of traffic.
In an attempt to avoid the Wall vehicle, Velencia Whittaker, 48, of Shelbyville entered into the turn lane and she collided with the Wall vehicle. Then Andrew Clanton, 23, of Shelbyville, who was operating a Ford F350 in the south bound lane, attempted to avoid the collision by veering into the north bound lane of traffic and was struck by one of the other vehicles. Investigators are not sure which vehicle was collided with.
LifeFlight helicopter landed on the site and transported Whittaker to Vanderbilt Medical Center for treatment of injuries.
Clanton was not injured in the crash.
The Tullahoma Fire Department assisted the Bedford County Fire Department in removing Wall from the crash, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
