MONROE COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) — A Tennessee man has died after a Monroe County crash that rolled his vehicle “multiple times,” according to a preliminary report by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
The fatal crash occurred around 2 p.m. Friday, May 19, on Little Notchey Creek Road, east of Madisonville. Timothy J. Baker, 31, was killed in the wreck.
Investigators said in a preliminary report that a 1993 Jeep Cherokee was going west on Little Notchey Creek Road near Povo Road when the Jeep left the roadway and traveled up an embankment on the left side of the road. The vehicle rolled multiple times, ejecting the driver from the vehicle.
It was the second fatal wreck in Monroe County over the weekend. On Sunday, May 21, a 69-year-old Florida man died when his Harley Davidson crashed on the Cherohala Skyway.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
