A 57 year old Silver Point man died in a one vehicle accident Monday night on the Old Baxter Road in Putnam County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol reports that Kenneth Jones was traveling westbound in a 1988 Ford Bronco SUV when the vehicle went off the right side of the roadway, into a ditchline and struck a telephone communications box. The SUV then continued westbound and struck a utility pole, overturned onto the passenger side, partially ejecting Jones, and then slid across the roadway. The vehicle came to a final rest off the left hand side of the road.

Jones was not wearing his safety belt

Trooper Scott Bilbrey of the Tennessee Highway Patrol investigated the accident.
