This came from the Monterey Paper:

One Monterey teenager
was fatally injured and three
others injured as they were
returning to Monterey on Interstate-
40 after they had
been to see a movie in
Crossville.
According to Tennessee
State Trooper Scott Bilbrey,
Matthew Harris, 18, was
driving a 2004 Ford Escape
in the westbound lane near
the 303-mile marker.
Trooper Bilbrey said an unknown
semi-truck tried to
pull over into Harris’ lane
forcing him off the road.
Trooper Bilbrey said that
Harris hit a guard rail and
the truck kept going. Another
semi-truck in the back
of the Harris vehicle saw
what was going on and went
into the left lane trying to
avoid the the wreck, but the
Harris vehicle, after hitting
the guard rail, bounced back
out and hit that semi-truck.
At that point, Trooper Bilbrey
said, Lindsey Toft, 18,
of Evergreen Lane, Monterey,
who was sitting in the
back passenger-side seat
was ejected through the back
window and landed some
distance from the vehicle on
the other side of the guard
rail in the grass.
Matthew Harris, who was
wearing a seatbelt, was
taken by the Putnam County
Ambulance Service, first to
Cookeville Regional Medical
Center and then, by the
ambulance service to Vanderbilt
Hospital, in
Nashville.
His sister, Kayla Harris, 19,
who was wearing her seatbelt
and was in the front passenger
side, was not
seriously injured.
Jessica Toft, 17, who
Trooper Bilbrey said was not
wearing a seatbelt and was
in the back seat on the driver’s
side, was taken to the
hospital by personal vehicle.
May many prayers go out
to the families.

Matt had 32 stitches and 4 staples in his head.He came home early this morning.He will be ok physically but they will all need our prayers.It's hard enough for an adult to deal with something like this but kids it's just not right but the Lord knows.
