One child killed in head-on collision

One child from Tullahoma has been killed in a head on collision that took place in Bedford County.

The crash took place on Highway 64 in Bedford County Tuesday night, March 23, according to a report released by the Tennessee Highway Patrol and reported by WKRN.

According to the report, a 19-year old man from Madison was driving an SUV westbound before 8 p.m. and attempted to pass another vehicle. At this point he slammed head-on into a sedan traveling eastbound.

Passengers in the sedan were a 5 and 6-year old, reportedly from Tullahoma. One of those children was pronounced dead at the scene, according to local authorities, and the other was injured. An earlier report by WKRN saying that both children had died was incorrect. 

The driver of the sedan, a 26-year old, and the driver of the SUV were injured but the report did not indicate severity of those injuries.

THP continues to investigate the crash, WKRN reports.

(An earlier version of this article cited a WKRN story that two children were killed. Authorities in Bedford County have confirmed now that one child was killed. The story has been corrected to reflect that information.)
