Wreck Results In Fatality On Thanksgiving

A 43 year-old man was killed around 12:45 p.m. Thanksgiving Day in a single-vehicle accident that occurred on Dry Hollow Road.

According to reports, a 1995 GMC pick-up driven by Larry James Harris, of the Dry Hollow Community, was travelling westbound on Dry Hollow Road when the vehicle entered but failed to negotiate a curve.

The vehicle reportedly crossed to the opposite lane of the highway, struck a utility pole, and overturned, coming to rest on its top. Harris was ejected from the vehicle.

No passengers were riding in the vehicle at the time of the accident.

THP Trooper James Sells, along with officers from Overton County Sheriff’s Department, responded to the scene.
