Man Killed in Cannon County, TN, Wreck Was Owner of Local Catering Company
CANNON COUNTY, TN. – According to an online news story from wkrn.com, a 53-year-old man who was killed in a vehicle wreck in Cannon County, Tennessee, was the owner of a local catering company. The man was involved in a single-vehicle collision on U.S. Highway 70.*
53-year-old Michael A. Alexander, of Woodbury, Tennessee, was driving a dump truck east on U.S. Highway 70 in Cannon County. In the area of Cummings Hollow Road, Alexander traveled off the roadway and overcorrected. The dump truck then reentered the highway, drove across both of the highway’s lanes, and left the opposite side of the road.
Alexander was not wearing a seat belt at the time, according to Tennessee Highway Patrol, and he was ejected from the vehicle. He did not survive the crash, and officials pronounced him deceased at the scene. It does not appear anyone else was riding in the dump truck at the time, and no one else was injured in the wreck.
Alexander and his wife owned Christie Q BBQ and Catering, a popular local catering service. The pair and their food business were staples at the Good Ole Days event and car shows around the county. Alexander was also a United States Postal Service mail carrier in Smithville, a position he had held for 28 years.
It is not yet clear what caused Alexander to leave the roadway the first time. No possible causes have yet been reported. Tennessee Highway Patrol Troopers are still investigating the wreck. No further information has been released to the public at this time.
