DANDRIDGE (WATE) - A pickup truck driver was injured and his passenger was killed Tuesday afternoon when they hit a tractor-trailer in Jefferson County.

A Tennessee Highway Patrol report says David T. Bible, 56, of Newport, was driving a 1987 Ford F-150 pickup truck west on U.S. Highway 25/70.

Bible struck a tractor-trailer at 3:19 p.m. that was on State Highway 113, making a left turn onto Highway 25/70.

THP says Bible's passenger, Robert Harvey Voyles, 65, of Newport, died in the crash.

The tractor-trailer driver, Paul C. Myers, 26, of Knoxville, was not injured.

The THP report says Bible and Voyles were not wearing seatbelts and the trooper believes they would have made a difference.

No charges or citations were issued.
