A Sunday wreck that killed three people in Dayton, Tenn., still is under investigation, authorities said, and no information has been released on the condition of the sole survivor.

Michael Crawley, 23; his 4-year-old son, Logan; and 17-year-old brother, Christopher Hunter Johnson, were killed in the accident.

The other passenger, 8-month-old Caydan Crawley, was airlifted to Children's Hospital at Erlanger in Chattanooga on Sunday. There was no further word on his condition as of Monday afternoon.

A THP accident report said a vehicle headed south in the 2900 block of Back Valley Road veered off the road Sunday at 1:31 p.m. after it "spun sideways and [the driver] lost control of the vehicle [and] struck an embankment and a brick and mortar mailbox."
