The driver of the Range Rover, who was identified as a 41-year-old man, was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. His name has not been released. 

It is not clear what caused the Honda driver to fail to yield the right-of-way. Tennessee authorities are still investigating the circumstances of the crash and have not yet released additional information to the public.
