man dies in wreck Thursday night
An Overton County man died Thursday, Oct. 23 in a
one-vehicle crash on Hardy's Chapel Road. According to reports,
Joshua Glen Dickerson, 19, of Moore Road, was driving a GMC Sonoma
east on Hardy's Chapel Road around 9:30 p.m. when the truck ran
off the road. Dickerson apparently overcorrected the vehicle, which
travelled across the road, hit a ditch, and overturned, throwing
him from the cab.
He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to reports.
Tennessee Highway Patrol officers Trooper Darrell Winningham, Sgt.
Mike Allen, and Lt. Oddie Shoupe investigated the fatal rollover.
