A 19 year old DeKalb County man died and two others were injured in a one vehicle crash Friday night in Cannon County.

Dead is Chad Jonathon Reeder of Big Hill Road, Smithville.

The accident occurred around 9:09 p.m. on State Route 281.

According to a report filed by Trooper Monty Terry of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Reeder was driving west in a 1991 Nissan pickup truck when he lost control while negotiating a curve. The truck went into a yaw, ran off the left shoulder, overturned, and struck a utility pole, ejecting Reeder and two passengers.

20 year old Zachary D. Turner of Pea Ridge, Liberty and a 17 year old boy were injured in the accident.

Neither of the three was wearing a seatbelt.

Turner has been charged with not wearing a seatbelt, underage consumption of alcohol, and leaving the scene of an accident.
