Waynesboro Couple Awakened by Truck in Their Bedroom Early Sunday Morning


       Jeff and Theresa Edwards, who reside at 2002 Green River Access Road in Waynesboro, were suddenly awakened, and unfortunately injured, when a 2011 Ford F350 crashed into their bedroom at approximately 1:39 a.m. on Sunday morning, June 28th.

       The Tennessee Highway Patrol reported that the driver of the truck, a 17-year-old juvenile from Waynesboro, was traveling southbound on Highway 13 when he swerved to miss a deer and ran off the roadway, striking a guardrail and a fence before crashing into the Edwards home.

       Both Mr. and Mrs. Edwards were transported to Wayne Medical Center for evaluation and treatment. Mrs. Edwards reportedly suffered compression fractures of the vertebrae in her back, while Mr. Edwards sustained severe bruising and contusions. The driver of the truck was reportedly uninjured.

       THP reported that no alcohol or drugs were involved.
