The driver of a minivan involved in a June 15 wreck that killed a Greene County father of 12 has died of injuries suffered in the crash, Morristown police said Tuesday.
Danny Lynn Musick, 52, died Monday afternoon at University of Tennessee Medical Center, police Maj. Michelle Jones said.
Musick, of Morristown, was behind the wheel of a truck that crashed head-on into a car driven by 56-year-old William "Bill" Vradenburgh, of the Warrensburg community. Vradenburgh died at the scene of the crash, police said.
Police said Musick was driving in the wrong direction on Highway 160 near Union Heights Elementary School when his Dodge Caravan slammed into Vradenburgh's 1997 Mazda sedan.
"Mr. Musick was driving on the wrong side of the road. He was traveling in Mr. Vradenburgh's lane of travel," Jones said.
Musick was flown by helicopter to University of Tennessee Medical Center, underwent surgery and remained a patient there until his death Monday.
Empty beer cans were found in the minivan and charges were pending against Musick, Jones said.
Musick was previously declared a habitual motor vehicle offender by the court system, Jones said.
He was driving on a revoked license at the time of the crash and not permitted to drive by court order.
Police await toxicology test results to determine Musick's blood alcohol content and the crash report will be updated to include that information, Jones said.
Musick was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. Vradenburgh was wearing a safety restraint, Jones said.
Vradenburgh was employed by Walmart Distribution Center, and also worked part-time for Azimuth Engineering.
Funeral services for Vradenburg were held June 19. Three of his 12 children were on a mission trip in Nicaragua when the accident occurred.
Vradenburgh's wife, Debbie, died of breast cancer in 2004.
