A 69-year-old Warren County resident became the second fatality in a two-vehicle crash on Sunday, Feb. 15 on McMinnville Highway.
Thomas Brewer died Tuesday, Feb. 17 of extensive trauma at Vanderbilt Medical Center, said Trooper Tony Myers of the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
Brewer was the second victim of the fatal collision. Fredrick McClure, 18, of Woodbury died after his 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier collied with a 2011 Chevy Silverado, driven by Brewer, on a curve outside of Woodbury's city limits.
Brewer was flown by LifeFlight helicopter to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville where he died.
"Mr. McClure was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision," said Trooper Tony Myers of the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Both vehicles were extensively damaged.
"Both occupants were restrained by safety belts," the trooper said.
"We don't think speed was a factor in the collision," Myers said.
