Laurel County Man Wanted For Deadly Accident

A Kentucky truck driver has landed on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s “10 Most Wanted” list. 

This past June, Benjamin Brewer of Laurel County was indicted on numerous charges of vehicular homicide and assault for a crash on I-75 that killed six people and injured four others.  The investigation by the NTSB found that Brewer didn’t slow down when he drove his semi-truck through a construction zone in Chattanooga, Tennessee and caused a chain reaction crash. He also tested positive for meth six weeks before and on the night of the accident. Police are now looking for him and believe he might be in Kentucky. 

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to Brewer's arrest.
