What a terrible tragedy .. This particular stretch of highway has seen many fatalities & serious accidents.. Many different reasons have caused these accidents... Speed, 18 wheelers on a small 2 lane highway, many driveways entering the road, impaired people ..just a bad road that all of us in Roane County travel...prayers for the family ...

HARRIMAN, Tenn.(WVLT)-- The investigation continues into a fiery crash in Roane County that killed four people- including three children.

THP says 7 year old Jackson Brown, nine year old Gage Brown and 10 month old Grason Brown were killed in the wreck. 31 year old Stephanie Brown also died. She was driving an SUV when it collided with a tractor trailer.

It happen on Highway 61 near little Emory Road in Harriman around 6:30.

Investigators say the SUV was heading west when it crossed into the center lane and struck the other vehicle head-on.

Both vehicles burst into flames.

The driver of the tractor trailer is said to be doing ok.

Due to the extensive damage of both vehicles, investigators are having a hard time figuring out some of the facts.

I have wondered why the father has not been mentioned, I thought maybe they were divorced ... Did the Mother work .. She looks familiar ...

I think you need to get your information from a more reliable source.Josh is still with us.He does not want to live.Who can blame him he has lost his wife and all three of his precious boys he does not want to live without them.I pray he looks to God for the sttregnth to make it through.Pray for the whole family as well as the truck driver and his family.I am sure he is having a very hard time dealing with the loss of these four precious lives.And he was hurt in the acccident as well.And lets not for get all the Police,Firefighters,rescue,and people who were@ the scene.

According to the sheriffs website, Josh Brown is in jail. Not sure if he is, just stating what I see on there.
