Rural car wreck claims Union City man
An early morning single-vehicle accident on Friday has claimed the life of 25-year-old Richard Lugten of Union City. According to a fatality report issued by the Tennessee Highway patrol, Lugten was traveling west on Mt. Pelia Road when he crossed the center line.
In an attempt to regain control of his Ford F-150 truck, Lugten apparently over-corrected and struck an embankment. The report claims Lugten’s vehicle overturned, partially ejecting from the truck.
The accident was reported shortly before 3 p.m. He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the report. The incident remains under investigation.
