One Dead, Up To Six Others Injured In Multi-Vehicle Wreck

(Memphis) One person is dead and up to six people, including a 4-year-old, are injured after a multi-vehicle wreck at Covington Pike and Raleigh LaGrange Wednesday.

An adult was pronounced dead at the scene, and those injured were taken to area hospitals for treatment.

The 4-year-old’s condition is critical.

Witnesses told us they believe a driver had a medical problem and lost control of his vehicle.

The driver’s car, a Mustang, plowed into the intersection at top speed.

All told, ten vehicles were involved in the crash.

Joe Pettus, who watched as crews hauled away his SUV, was just thankful he was able to walk away from the pile-up.

    My heart goes out to the family of the man who lost his life praying for the baby&all of those involved in the wreck

    Sorry for the loss and all the families are in thoughts and prayers but I’m waiting for the day Memphis news can finally talk about some positive stuff like people doing things right or kids being good in school, maybe if they quit focusing on such negative aspects of Memphis we would have more ppl striving to be good and get on the news? We should try it out!

    He did not have a heart attack. My friends saw the accident. They said that he was going 90-100 mpg and never slowed down but when he got right up to the cars he SWERVED and tried to miss but could not and swerved back and had no choice to hit the cars. Get an autopsy.

    Doubt he had a heart attack. He was disgruntled and mad. He had jus caused a scene in a local business, was thrown out, got fried from his job from causing that scene and then caused this wreck.

  • WestTNMom

    No one can know if he had a heart attack. Ridiculous how people claim to know things when they actually have no clue. He did have a medical condition, and no, he would not have intentionally endangered the lives of anyone just because he was angry. He was a loving, caring father/grandfather who will be greatly missed by his family.

  • Mia Watson

    Yes, the man had a heart attack and died. He had no control so please don’t post hurtful comments. He was a friend of ours so we know this
    is correct information.

    The male was not drunk not texting at all. He was an elder gentleman an had recently proposed marriage to a dear friend of mine he had a massive heart attack behind the wheel it killed him instantly. He was a very dear man .
