Pick-up and Dump Truck Collide

 

On June 22nd, around 11:26am, a 2002 GMC Dump Truck driven by Christopher Whitehead, 24, of Clarksville, collided with a 2008 Dodge Ram pickup driven by Jacob Young, 26 of Clarksville in the 1100 Block of Needmore Rd.  The preliminary  investigation indicates that two vehicles headed northbound on Needmore Rd were slowing down for a vehicle turning into a driveway when the Dump truck also traveling northbound attempted to stop, skidded into the oncoming lane and collided with the driver’s side of the pickup truck which was traveling southbound.  Tentatively, it appears as though Jacob Young was ejected from the pickup onto the grassy surface; the passenger (name unknown) remained in the vehicle.
