The man who died in the crash early Tuesday of a pickup truck in the Greystone community is 36-year-old Alex M. Rowell, of Knoxville, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
Four others in the 2003 Dodge pickup truck were injured.

The truck was westbound about 3:05 a.m. Tuesday in the 4800 block of Greystone Road when it slammed into a tree "and became engulfed in flames," Trooper Joe Taylor said in a preliminary report.

"Speed was an issue" in the crash, the report said.

The driver was Quinton A. Britton-Rowell, 18, of Afton. The report said Britton-Rowell "tried to negotiate a curve (and) the vehicle ran off the right side of the roadway, striking a tree."

Britton-Rowell had been drinking, the report said.

Unspecified citations were issued to Britton-Rowell, and criminal charges are pending, the report said.

Alex Rowell is the father of Quinton Britton-Rowell, Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services Director Robert Sayne said today.

Quinton Britton-Rowell had recently completed U.S. Marine Corps basic training, and was about to be deployed, Sayne said.

Britton-Rowell was discharged Wednesday from Johnson City Medical Center, Sayne said.

The other passengers injured in the crash were Ronald L. Williams, 53, of Jonesborough; Misti D. Runion, 27, of Jonesborough; and Eric C. Griffith, 30, of Jonesborough.

Two of the passengers were airlifted to Johnson City Medical Center, and the others were taken to local hospitals. Their conditions were not available this morning.

The wreck happened near the intersection with Round Knob Road. The posted speed limit on Greystone Road in the area of the crash is 35 mph.

The truck caught on fire after impact, Sayne said.

Alex Rowell was pinned in the truck after the crash occurred, Sayne said.

The pickup truck was a "king-cab" model with a back seat, he said.

An investigation into the crash continues by the THP.
