CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Clarksville man faces charges after authorities say he let his 13-year-old son drive an SUV that crashed.
Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Todd Pitts says Jeffrey Morrison was in the passenger seat when his son started to run off the right side of the road heading south.
He overcorrected and crossed northbound lane, then went off the road and down a 30-foot embankment.
Two other minors were in the SUV at the time. Morrison's son and one of the other minors were taken to the hospital with injuries.
Morrison is charged with allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a vehicle and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
