MARSHALL COUNTY, Tenn. – A 16-year-old driver was killed and an 11-year-old passenger was injured in a crash in Marshall County on Wednesday morning.

Investigators said 16-year-old Jackie "Trey" White III was driving a pickup truck eastbound when he crossed the double center line and struck the back left side of another pickup pulling a trailer that was traveling the opposite direction. The pickup also struck the trailer during the collision.

Trey was killed in the crash. His 11-year-old brother, Liam White, was a passenger in the car; he taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Vanderbilt officials said Liam was discharged Wednesday afternoon.

Officials said the boys' family had just moved from Athens in November.
