Adair County Truck Driver Dies

An Adair County truck driver is dead after a fiery crash in eastern Tennessee.

Two semi trucks crashed into each other and exploded in flames on August 16 on I-75 in Campbell County Tennessee.

Both drivers were killed instantly.

Dental records were used to identify one of the drivers as 52-year-old Edgar Holmes Junior, of Adair County.

Authorities say the wheel came off one of the trucks, causing it to cross the median, and slam into another tractor-trailer.

There's no word on the identity of the other driver.
