VIDEO: Pickup Driver loses life after hitting gas main in White house

UPDATE: Video Report A man driving a dark colored pickup truck on Hwy 31 towards Hwy 76 lost control and plowed into the Stone Cottage Antique Shop at 3210 Hwy 31, White House, TN, Tn around 7:35pm. The truck hit a gas main which ignited a fire. Robertson County & Sumner County EMS along with White House Rescue responded to the call. According to witnesses at the scene the truck had struck another vehicle on 31W and then preceded on before losing control and plowing into the Stone Cottage.
