Livingston Man Killed In Single-Car Crash

The traffic division of the Cookeville Police Department says a single vehicle crash on Hudgens Street Tuesday night claimed the life of an Overton County man. It happened just before 11 pm, east of Old Walton Road. Police say 21-year-old Jakob Edwin Gunnels of Preston Street in Livingston was driving a 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo eastbound on Hudgens and rounded the corner near Old Walton Road, apparently lost control and left the roadway on the left hand side, striking a tree. He died at the scene of the crash. Police say investigation into the cause of the wreck is still ongoing.
