POWELL (WATE) - Troopers are investigating a deadly crash involving a tractor-trailer and a pickup truck in Anderson County Wednesday morning.

According to the Tennessee Department of Transportation, the accident happened around 6 a.m. on Edgemoor Road near Mockingbird Hill Lane.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says a tractor trailer was traveling east on Edgemoor when a westbound pickup truck driven by Michael Utley, 39, crossed the center line and hit the tractor trailer head on.

Utley died at the scene. The driver of the tractor trailer, Edmund Wood, 57, was not injured.

TDOT says eastbound and westbound traffic was affected with the roadway closed between South Dogwood Road and Old Edgemoor Road. A tractor trailer stuck at Old Edgemoor and Edgemoor compounded the traffic problem.

Officials were able to reopen the roadway around 3 p.m. Crews said the reopening took some time because they had to repair damaged pavement.
