An Oliver Springs man died in a head-on collision on Marlow Road on Tuesday night, authorities said.
The crash was reported at about 10:19 p.m. Tuesday, according to a Tennessee Highway Patrol fatality report.
The THP report said Brian E. Hooks, 33, of Oliver Springs was driving east on Marlow Road in a 1992 Nissan four-door when he crossed the center line, entered the westbound lane, and collided head-on with a 1993 Chevrolet four-door driven by Ryan J. Maston, 26, of Clinton.
The crash was investigated by THP Sergeant Scott Hines.
Drugs and alcohol are not suspected in the crash, but tests have been requested, which is routine in fatal crashes.
The fatality report said neither Hooks nor Maston, who was injured, were wearing a seat belt. Safety restraints would have made a difference, Hines said.
The report said citations have been issued.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
