Pioneer man killed in S.R. 63 crash

PIONEER — A 43-year-old man was killed, and a second man was injured, in a two-vehicle crash on S.R. 63 here Tuesday evening.

John Anderson, 43, of Pioneer, has been identified as the person fatally injured in the crash. A second man, 49-year-old Bill Scott Bray, of LaFollette, was injured in the accident.

According to a preliminary report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the crash occurred just before 7:30 p.m. on S.R. 63 near Old Hwy. 63 in Campbell County, when Anderson’s eastbound 2012 Toyota Corolla crossed the double yellow line and struck a westbound UPS van driven by Bray.
