ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) –  Officials are releasing more information about a violent crash that took the lives of two on the southbound side of I65 early Saturday morning.

The first call came into 911 at 3:48 am Saturday morning..  According to the preliminary THP report of the crash, a 2018 Hyundai Sonnota, heading south on I65 just south of Hwy 52 (mile marker 115) left the roadway and struck a guardrail-end on the left. The Sonnota (with four on board) then reentered the roadway and struck a guardrail-face on the right shoulder. According to the THP, the Sonnota then crossed the interstate again stopping against a concrete barrier wall. A second vehicle, identified as a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado (traveling south) struck the Sonnota and two occupants in the roadway with a glancing blow as they exited the car. The pair in the roadway were then struck again by another vehicle identified only as a “commercial vehicle.” According to the THP’s report the “commercial vehicle” (reportedly a tractor-trailer) did not stop.

The THP reiterated that the mechanics of the crash are still under investigation.

Of the reported four people in the Sonnota, 33-year-old Aubrey Mckee and 30-year-old Bradley Snell did not survive, both were pronounced deceased at the scene. The remaining two occupants were transported to area hospitals. Of the two that survived, one was transported to an area hospital in very critical condition. The fourth occupant faired the best, being transported in stable condition with one report that they have been released from the hospital.
