The SUV collided with the front driver’s side of the Saturn and overturned, coming to rest in the ditch near a culvert. The Escape’s driver, Robert Morgan, and passenger, Jack Burks, both of Hilham, were both transported to Livingston Regional Hospital by Overton County Ambulance Service, as was Geesling.
