A fourth vehicle, a 1989 Freightliner logging truck driven by 26 year old Trendal Galyon of Ten Mile struck the last of the three vehicles in line, causing a chain reaction crash of all 4 vehicles. Gaylon and the driver of a 2021 Freightliner, Thomas Sykes, Age 61 of Dunlap, TN were both reported as injured.
