Graysville, TN (WRCB) -

UPDATE: The Tennessee Highway Patrol has identified the driver that rear-ended a dump truck as 41-year-old David Tucker.

Troopers said three vehicles were traveling northbound on State Highway 111. 

A cargo truck carrying sand was traveling at a slow rate of speed due to the weight of the truck's load. Investigators said the truck's emergency flashers were on while he was driving in the right lane. 

Investigators said Tucker rear-ended the truck and was then hit by another car forcing the victim's car to spin.

The other drivers suffered minor injuries and are expected to be okay.
