A Tennessee man faces serious charges after a horrific crash killed two people and an unborn baby. Emergency crews responded to the head-on collision on Friday around 6 p.m. at the intersection of Raccoon Valley Road and Hausmond Way, according to the Rural Metro Fire Department.

Court records reveal that 20-year-old Jonathon Jones, of Luttrell, was driving east on Raccoon Valley Road in a Nissan Sentra when he crossed into the westbound lane and hit a Ford Expedition. Witnesses reported that Jones had been driving recklessly, passing other cars on a double-yellow line before the crash. The fire department confirmed, “Several were trapped and had to be cut from the wreckage.”

Five people were injured and taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for treatment. Tragically, at the hospital, court records state that Casandra Jones, the only passenger in Jonathon Jones’ car and his pregnant wife, was declared dead along with her unborn baby, told Daily Mail.

The driver of the Ford and two passengers also suffered injuries. One of the passengers, identified as Virginia Brooks, died at the hospital on Saturday morning.

While speaking to Jonathon Jones at UT Medical Center, a trooper noted that he had bloodshot, watery eyes. Jones allegedly admitted to the trooper that he had smoked marijuana. Jones has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault, improper passing, and three counts of vehicular homicide by intoxication. The Tennessee Highway Patrol is handling the investigation into the crash.

The devastating accident has left a community mourning the loss of lives due to reckless driving. As details continue to emerge, the charges against Jonathon Jones highlight the severe consequences of impaired and irresponsible driving. Authorities remain committed to a thorough investigation to ensure justice for the victims and their families.
