Charges are pending in a Marion County crash that killed one person and sent two others to the hospital.

The driver of the SUV, 69-year-old Robert Gage from Pennsylvania, died at the scene. 70-year-old Sharon Gage was in the passenger seat and was airlifted to the hospital.

She's in critical but stable condition.

An ambulance took the driver of the semi, 56-year-old Norman Bruan who is also from Pennsylvania, to the hospital. He was treated and released. 

TDOT estimated the area to be cleared by 2:00am EST. If you need to go this way, you can detour at exit 174 then take Highway 41.
