Around 9:00 a.m. Thursday, two tractor trailers were driving on opposite sides of Highway 305 at County Road 218 in McMinn County when one had its trailer detach and collide with the truck on the opposite side.

The truck then went off the roadway and overturned, killing 53-year-old John Hubbard.

The driver of the tractor trailer that had its vehicle detach, 40-year-old Earnest Biddwell, has been charged with vehicle homicide and cited for driving on a revoked license with no medical card.
