Florida Man Injured In Rollover Accident On I-24
A Florida man was flown to a Nashville hospital following a single vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon in Trigg County. The Trigg County Sheriff’s Department says 66-year old Dennis Stockley, of Ocoee, Florida, was near the 65-mile marker, close to the intersection with U.S. 68, when a rear tire on his truck blew out, causing Stockley to lose control of his vehicle.
The vehicle exited the roadway and overturned. The News Edge spoke to Stockley on the scene, who said his vehicle then began to catch fire. Stockley was transported to Broadbent Square, and then flown to Skyline Medical Center for what were believed to be non-life threatening injuries.
