A McMinnville man was killed early Saturday morning when his car crashed and overturned on Short Mountain Road.
Eric Lee Linder, 38, died in the single-car accident that happened around 4:30 a.m. Saturday morning in rural Warren County.
According to a Highway Patrol report, Linder was traveling southbound in his 1990 Camaro when it ran off the left side of Short Mountain Road near the Vinson’s Crossroad area.
The Camaro reportedly crossed a driveway and rolled up an embankment. It then traveled back on the roadway where it came to rest on its roof. The roof of the T-top vehicle gave way, killing Linder.
Officials believe Linder fell asleep behind the wheel.
Mr. Linder is survived by a wife and three children. Obituary information is available on page 2A.
