SELMER, TN -

(WMC-TV) – One person is dead following a collision with a logging truck in McNairy County Wednesday morning.

According to WBBJ, three vehicles were involved in the crash on Highway 45 south of Selmer at about 7:40 a.m.

Investigators say the driver of a Geo Tracker was driving erratically and sideswiped the logging truck.

WBBJ reports that the Geo Tracker then went into the southbound lanes where it was hit by an oncoming semi-truck. The Geo Tracker caught fire and the semi-truck ran off the road and crashed into a house.

Police say the driver of the Geo Tracker was killed in the accident. The name of the victim has not been released.

Nobody was inside the home but one of the family's pets was killed in the accident.
