Tractor-Trailer Tires Crash Into Home
According to a report by Coffee County Deputy David Grosch, a resident of Hillsboro Highway told the officer she was okay as she exited her residence last Thursday.
The deputy stated in his report that he noticed that the carport had been severely damaged and bricks from the wall were on the ground.
Then the owner of the tractor-trailer, Johnny Lee Morris, appeared and stated that one of his drivers had called and said that a set of tires came off the truck. The driver, Christopher Lee Irvin, stated that he felt the truck shake and then the wheels came off of it. He said he was transporting a load of tile to McMinnville and was traveling north on Hillsboro Highway when the incident occurred.
This mishap occurred at the same time the accident at the Exit 114 overpass was taking place.
