Jackson County Traffic Fatality

A 62-year-old Tennessee man died Thursday in a two-car crash on U-S 231 in Campbellton in northern Jackson County.

Robert Wayne Irwin of Murfreesboro died when his pickup truck crashed into the rear of a semi-tractor trailer rig which had broken down in the outside lane of the roadway.

Troopers say Irwin failed to adjust his speed and failed to take any evasive action, crashing directly into the back of the semi. The impact of the collision moved the truck 12 feet.

The truck driver, Horace Dubose, Jr. of Birmingham, Alabama was not injured.
