NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Officials say a 31-year-old man died when his car was washed into flood waters caused by heavy rain in Middle Tennessee.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol said 31 year-old Dale Wilson, of Graysville, was killed early Friday when a culvert washed out and caused a road to collapse in Cumberland County. A THP report said Wilson went into the 30-foot washout while driving at high speed on George Branch Road.
According to WSMV-TV, flooding also was reported in Putnam and Jackson counties.
National Weather Service officials say the storms spawned two tornadoes near Lebanon and two other tornadoes in Old Hickory on Thursday night.
The tornadoes were given a preliminary rating of EF0, with wind speeds between 65 and 85 miles per hour. They caused minor roof damage to several homes.
