A Manchester man has been charged with DUI and violation of the implied consent law after a two-car accident on Interstate 24 late Wednesday, July 2.
According to a report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, charged with DUI and violation of implied consent is Tony Clayborne, 52, of Manchester, after his vehicle struck another vehicle and sent both vehicles rolling at approximately 10:45 p.m. July 2 near mile marker 108.
According to the THP report, Clayborne was traveling eastbound on I-24 and “failed to maintain control and crossed over [the] center line and struck vehicle two.”
Vehicle two is described as a 2014 Ford Explorer operated by Aundrette Logan, 51, of Chattanooga, Tenn. Also in the vehicle as passengers were Libby Bandy, 53, of Chattanooga, Evelyn Logan, 66, of San Bernadino, California, Lonnie Logan, 47, of San Bernadino, California and Tavonne Anderson, 8, of San Bernadino, California. None of the passengers in the Ford Explorer suffered life-threatening injuries, according to the report. All five were wearing seatbelts. Clayborne was also reported to be wearing a seatbelt.
According to the report, after Clayborne’s 2005 Ford Explorer Sportrac struck Logan’s vehicle, both vehicles “exited the roadway to the right” and both “rolled over several times.”
