The Tennessee Highway Patrol responded to a fatal accident in Robertson County where a man and woman were killed.

The accident, involving a tractor trailer and passenger vehicle, occurred on State Highway 49 near the Wilks Road intersection.

Authorities reported Teresa Jackson, 59, and 36-year-old Jason Jackson was traveling northbound on the roadway when their vehicle crossed the center line and struck a tractor trailer head-on.
