New Tazewell man dies in single-car accident


TAZEWELL (WATE) - A New Tazewell man died Thursday night after his car ran off the road.

Dustin Poore, 25, was killed just before 11 p.m. while driving along Dogwood Road in Claiborne County.

According to a Tennessee Highway Patrol report, Poore was driving west when he crested a hill and went off the road on the right side.

He overcorrected, driving back into the roadway before striking a tree on the lefthand side of the road head on.

Poore was not wearing a seat belt and troopers say it would have made a difference in the crash.
