“That was a really tragic event. This morning the whole city saw a trag바카라ic crash and tragedy. The City of Chattanooga has done everything they can to assist the family in their grief and loss,” said Chattanooga Fire Chief Robert Martin at a Monday news conference.
The victims of the crash were identified as 32-year-old William J. Smith, 43-year-old T.J. Smith and 26-year-old Anthony R. Johnson.
