The crash left the Corvette badly damaged, particularly on the passenger side from the cockpit forward.
Traffic was delayed while the scene was cleared, though one lane of Highway 49 remained open during most of the investigation.
The Cross Plains Fire Department, Robertson County Sheriff’s Office, Robertson County EMS, Robertson County Emergency Management Agency and the Tennessee Highway Patrol all responded to the crash.
