According to a Lawrence County Police report, Chastain was traveling east on Guthrie Road and was looking toward the woods, because he is a deer hunter, when his 2007 Ford truck drifted across the center line.

Chastain's truck sideswipped Young's 2000 Jeep, then Chastain's truck hit the guard rail.

Young suffered a possible broken right hand and complained of pain. Young's mother-in-law, whose name was not mentioned, and was in the backseat of the Jeep sprained her left arm and thumb.

Assisting at the scene were two ambulances from St. Vincent Dunn Hospital and emergency crews from Marshall Volunteer Fire Department.
