A 1999 Ford Crown Victoria with four occupants on board, driven by Bobby Bemonbreum, 35, of Tennessee, was traveling north on Hwy 431 and attempted to pass a 2016 Ford Escape driven by a 62-year-old male, also from Tennessee.

After impact, both vehicles ran off the road to the right, with the Crown Victoria flipping multiple times and the Ford Escape colliding with a culvert. The Crown Victoria came to rest on its roof in a field, while the Ford Escape stopped to the right of the roadway.
