A 20-year-old Sewanee man remains in Franklin County Jail on $250,000 bond after being arrested in connection with a wreck on Midway Road near the Otter Falls Road intersection where a 17-year-old Tracy City boy was killed, according to Tennessee Highway Patrol reports.
The victim was not immediately identified.
Dallon Dodson was charged with vehicular homicide and driving under the influence, according to Franklin County Sheriff’s Office reports. He is to appear in Franklin County General Sessions Court at 8 a.m. on June 18, reports said.
Highway Patrol reports said that Dodson was driving a 2012 GMC vehicle northbound on Midway Road, near Sewanee, when it went off the roadway’s right side while trying to negotiate a left-hand curve, reports said.
After leaving the roadway, the GMC struck an embankment and came to rest in the ditch on the right side of the road, reports said, adding that the 17-year-old was ejected through the passenger side window and died from his injuries.
