Spurlock was killed in a wreck at the intersection of Ditty Road and Mine Lick Creek Road Sunday afternoon. Spurlock was a passeanger in a car that allegedly ran a stop sign at that intersection. The THP says neither he, nor anyone else in the car were wearing seat belts -- and says all of the passengers were ejected from the vehicle after it was broadsided and crashed into a utility pole. A total of nine people in both vehicles were injured, according to authorities. Meanwhile, in a separate incident, authorities in Kentucky say a Cookeville woman was seriously injured in a wreck on Highway 31-W.  Darlya Goad was a passenger in a vehicle that caught fire after being involved in a head-on crash.
