Three young men lost their lives on Highway76 South in Haywood County in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The one-car wreck was reported about 3:30 a.m.
Eddie L. West, 23, Martavius T. Robinson, 23, and Jarves Gause, 24, were all dead at the scene, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol’s report. All of the victims were from Brownsville.
The 2000 model Cadillac was northbound on Highway 76 South with West at the wheel when it “lost control and went into a high speed yaw,” according to the trooper’s report. The car left the road, careened down a deep embankment and hit a tree. Sources say all three victims had to be extricated from the wreckage. The wreck occurred between Koko and O’Neal’s lake.
The trooper says none of the three men were wearing seatbelts.
