Local farmers talk road safety after fatal tractor-involved crash

Investigators said the man driving the car died trying to pass other vehicles in a no-passing zone.

“You can come up on a tractor pretty quickly,” said Gina Thompson, communications director for the Tennessee Soybean Promotion Council Inc. “They will let you by when they see there’s a safe spot for them to pull over.”

Tractors have headlights, but they look a lot like lights on cars, according to the Tennessee Soybean Promotion Council.
