WHITE HOUSE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Highway Patrol has
identified an Alabama truck driver killed in one of at least three
fatal accidents related to strong storms.

Troopers say 59-year old William Stewart, of New Hope, Alabama,
was killed yesterday in a crash on rain-slick Interstate 24 in
Murfreesboro, reports The Daily News Journal.

The accident report states Stewart was unable to stop his rig in
time when a rig in front of him braked to avoid an earlier accident
and Stewart's truck rear-ended it.

The other deaths were those of a city public works employee in
White House who was swept into a storm drain he had cleared and an elderly Franklin County man who was pinned under a mobile home that a storm overturned.
