Austin Oppelt Killed, Andrew Tidwell Hurt in Accident in Thompson’s Station, TN

Thompson's Station, TN -- A single-vehicle collision left 18-year-old Austin Oppelt dead and 18-year-old Andrew Tidwell with injuries in Thompson's Station, TN.

It looks like the vehicle occupied by the two victims was westbound on Critz Lane when the incident happened. Sources say when the vehicle approached the hill at the intersection with Clayton Arnold, it veered out of control. The vehicle reportedly crossed the center line, careened off the roadway on the left-hand side and went into a ditch. The vehicle then crashed into a group of trees, rolling over several times before coming to a stop. Mr. Oppelt was killed at the scene of the incident. His passenger, Mr. Tidwell, was left with undisclosed injuries.

Authorities are currently conducting the investigation.

The media report left no more information at the time of its release.
