McNAIRY COUNTY, Tenn. - A McNairy County woman is dead and another injured in Bethel Springs.

One man who lives nearby said it is common to hear screeching tires outside his window.

"We heard a loud collision, we knew exactly what it was," said Greg Sisk.

Greg Sisk did not see the wreck happen Friday afternoon but he saw the aftermath.

"The passenger side was all torn out and of course one person was DOA," said Sisk.

He has lived on Buena Vista Road all his life and feels the intersection which leads to the Highway 45 Bypass is just too dangerous.

"This is one of the most dangerous intersections in this county we had numerous accidents here and I hate to say a number of deaths since I've lived here."

Sisk said he was a part of a board to install the caution lights, but he said the accidents have not stopped.

Sisk said he has seen a lot of tragedy this week with the recent storm damage and now a tragic accident.
