A Pulaski couple was killed late Thursday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 110.

William A. Watson, Jr., 78, and Joan Watson, 82, of Pulaski, died from injuries sustained in the accident, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP).

The Watsons were traveling north on Orchard Hill Road in a 2007 Toyota passenger car, according to a report by the THP. A 16-year-old male, from Fayetteville, was traveling east on Highway 110 when the Watson vehicle turned left into the path of the teen’s vehicle, a 2001 Chevrolet pick-up truck.

Trooper Tommy Boylen, the investigating officer, noted that speed was not a factor in the accident.

The Watsons and the teen driver were all wearing seat belts, according to the trooper’s report.
