BARTLETT, Tenn. — One person is dead and several others have been hurt in a crash in Bartlett.

A man was driving a black Chevy Avalanche west on Daybreak and ran a stop sign, hitting another vehicle traveling northbound on Billy Maher.

The other vehicle, a Silverado, had two passengers and was hit on its right side.

Both vehicles spun and rolled over, with the Silverado hitting a third vehicle.

The third vehicle’s passenger, a woman , was taken to Regional Medical Center. Her condition was stable.

The Avalanche’s driver, 45-year-old Eugene Delong, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    I swear I feel like I’m among about 5% of drivers that actually stop at stop signs and signal lane changes. It amazes me how people can ignore these extremely simple ways of preventing accidents.

    Okay it may be simple but hard when your having a seizure. Get all the facts before you comment on something.

      I was afraid it was something like that :( I googled his name after it was released and saw that he owns a farm in the area and assumed it had to be something medical for him to run a stop sign in an area he knew so well. Sending up prayers for his loved ones.
