Megan Cox, a 24-year-old Camden woman was traveling on Highway 70 westbound, just outside of Bruceton, when the vehicle she was driving hit an icy patch on the roadway and careened out of control.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol report, the accident happened around 8:24 a.m. on Thursday morning, November 15. Cox was driving a 2011 Suzuki Grand Viatri SUV when it began sliding on the ice and caused the rear end of the vehicle to cross into on-coming traffic.
Heading Eastbound, a 1989 Ford F250 pickup, driven by 59-year-old William Foster, impacted the passenger side of the SUV. Foster was injured in the accident. The extent of his injuries was unclear from the report.
Cox was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Camden High School graduate was a commuter from Camden to University Tennessee Martin and was slated to graduate later this year with a degree in psychology.
