On the night of September 29th, a Tennessee teen couple, Austin Moffitt and Alexis McCann, were struck by a semi-truck on the driver’s side of the Jeep. The Tennessee Highway Patrol stated that the Jeep rolled through a stop sign at the Tennessee State Route 28 and John Burd Road intersection. The truck driver was not injured, and the teen couple wore seatbelts, but they both passed away on the scene.
Former teachers, peers, and family members are devastated about the loss of Austin and Alexis. There is fundraising for Austin and Alexis to help their families pay for their funeral costs.
