A Tazewell man is dead following a single-vehicle accident in Claiborne County Thursday morning.
Tennessee Highway Patrol said Damon R. Tuner, 45, was ejected from his Jeep Rangler during a crash on Little Sycamore Road shortly before 7:40 a.m.
Officials said his Jeep Rangler traveled off the roadway and struck a ditch, causing the SUV to go airborne. The vehicle then crashed into a tree, which ejected Turner from his vehicle.
Authorities said Turner was wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.
