THP: Loudon County man killed in single-vehicle wreck

LOUDON — Authorities found the body Saturday of a Loudon County man who’d been killed in an overnight car crash, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Larry R. Ferguson, 50, of Philadelphia was going around a curve on Steekee Road in a 2001 Ford Mustang when the car went over an embankment and landed on its top, Trooper Philip Wagner wrote in his report.

The accident was discovered about 5:10 p.m. Saturday, but authorities believe it happened sometime the previous evening, Wagner said.

Ferguson was wearing his seat belt, and he had apparently been drinking alcohol, the report noted.
