Joint services are planned Sunday, June 20, for the two victims of a fatal nine-vehicle crash Thursday, June 13, in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
Deja Marie Morris, 25, West Harrison, and Brandon Matthew Wilson, 28, Lawrenceburg, were killed when a semi trailer truck tipped onto its side and slid into the other vehicles, causing the vehicle they were in to catch fire, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
The wreck occurred at 12:19 a.m. on Interstate 24, where traffic still was congested from an earlier collision, said the THP.
The truck driver, Stacy Colvin, 40, Campbellsville, Ky., was cited for failure to exercise due care, according to the THP. Any potential criminal charges are pending toxicology results, which typically take about eight to 10 weeks to return, said THP Public Information Officer Dalya Qualls.
Five other individuals were injured in the crash, said THP. Witnesses indicated many of the victims, including the deceased, were on their way to the Bonnaroo music festival.
Visitation for Morris and Wilson will be 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., followed by services at 4 p.m., all at Bright Christian Church, Bright. Pastor Rob Sweeny will officiate, and burial will follow in Gibson Cemetery.
