Coy R. Slaven, a 35-year-old Harriman man, was killed in a Saturday morning car crash.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the wreck happened on Hwy. 27 at the intersection of Rock Bridge Road just after midnight.
The report said Slaven ran off the road and struck a tree in his 1996 Ford Explorer.
No other vehicles were involved in the wreck. The report didn’t say what may have caused Slaven to run off the road.
He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.
That wouldn’t have made a difference, according to the investigating trooper’s report.
Slaven was the sixth person to die in a traffic accident in Roane County this year, according to state fatality statistics. His obituary can be found on Page 6 in this edition of the Roane County News.
