Three Killed in North Knoxville Crash

Three people are dead after a crash on Emory Road Saturday. Investigators say 26-year-old Alec Forian was driving a utility truck when he crossed multiple lanes and crashed head-on into a pickup truck.

Forian was ejected and pronounced dead on the scene. A Clarksville couple, 75-year-old Roddy Martin Jr. and his 72-year-old wife Connie, were also pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials say an alert was issued for Forian earlier in the day for erratic driving. A drug and alcohol test has been ordered to see if he was driving impaired.
