Truck driver investigated for accident that killed six in Chattanooga

Posted on Wednesday, July 15th, 2015   

A truck accident occurred in Chattanooga, Tennessee on June 25, resulting in the deaths of six individuals, two of whom were children, according to WDEF News 12.

The accident occurred on Interstate 75 when a commercial truck failed to adjust to slowed traffic due to construction. The truck then crashed into the row of cars in front of it.

Police authorities are conducting an investigation against Benjamin Brewer, the 39-year-old truck driver involved. Brewer reportedly received a citation for a traffic violation just the day before the crash in Chattanooga. Additionally, officers in Rock County in Wisconsin said they have a warrant for Brewer’s arrest due to his attempt to buy medication at a drug store with a fake prescription.

The National Transportation Safety Board, the Chattanooga Police Department, and the state highway patrol are working together to investigate this terrible accident. Lt. John Harmon of the Tennessee Highway Patrol said they are examining data from the truck to establish a timeline of events.
