Four persons were transported to Livingston Regional
Hospital following a head-on collision on Highway 52 near the Fentress
County line around 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6. According to reports,
a silver 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee, driven by Harmie Thompson, 57,
was attempting to turn into a driveway from the eastbound lane and
crossed into the path of a red 1992 Toyota pickup driven westward
by Jesse Howard, 23. When the pickup topped a nearby blind hill,
it collided head-on with the Jeep. The Jeep's driver was apparently
uninjured, but two passengers, Anna Thompson, 53, and Makali Thompson,
8, were transported by Overton CountyAmbulance Service to LRH. The
truck's driver and a passenger, Margie Howard, 41, were also injured,
and were transported by ambulance to LRH. Trooper Marty Philpot
of Tennessee Highway Patrol investigated the incident.
