This accident happened on Hwy 15 just south of Clarksville. I understand a person was killed. Any info on who it was and what happened? I know it involved a boat.

His name was Ben Eldreth, He was 33 years old, husband and father of 3. I do not know the details of the accident, but keep his family in your prayers. You can go to tri-cities.com obituraries.

Ben was everybody's friend. His funeral was handled by Farris Funeral in Abingdon, VA. The viewing was scheduled on monday, July 9, from 6pm to 8pm. It actually lasted till almost 11pm. Farris stated that a little over 1000 people came to pay respect. One of the highest turn-outs for them and for our small town. Ben was my best friend. Whether it was splunking in remote caves, or riding our matching DR 650's, or just sittin around... He was the best.... Everyone that knew him will miss him GREATLY!!! We'll NEVER forget you buddy!

I heard that someone towing a boat changed lanes and didn't see him. That's just hearsay, so I'm not sure. However it happened, it shouldn't have and it's a tragic situation.

The suburban was towing the bass boat. the ranger, that hit Ben, hit the sub's drivers mirror, then the boat. a woman in a car behind the boat made a right onto another road while the ranger was crashing. that left Ben exposed. the resue squad's HQ was close by and were able to get to the scene in about 3 minutes. he was already gone when they arrived.
