A man died today after a full-sized pickup truck hit the Toyota sedan carrying him and his wife at about 1 p.m. at 911 Mountain Creek Road in Chattanooga.
Police said Caitlin Davis, 23, crossed the center line in her Ford F-250 pickup and hit the oncoming Toyota. Henry Brown, 84, and his wife, Mary, were trapped inside their car until rescuers used the Jaws of Life to free them.
The Browns and Davis were taken to the hospital, where Henry Brown later died.
Davis and Mary Brown received non-life threatening injuries, police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary said.
Weary said investigators are still trying to determine why Davis crossed the center line and that charges are possible.
