Neither of the occupants was using a seat belt during the 5:57 p.m. Wednesday crash, according to a report filed by Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Kris Underwood.

Vaugh R. McNew, 21, was driving the 1993 Honda Civic del Sol along Sunnyside Road when the convertible left the road, Underwood noted.
