While a Wednesday night collision with a porch on Short Mountain Highway apparently didn’t result an any serious injuries, it did result in a DUI charge. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 39-year-old Franklin Rigsby was the driver of a Ford Explorer that left the roadway and caused damage to two other properties before striking the porch of Herbert Rose's home at 9126 Short Mountain Highway. The impact knocked the porch of Rose’s home off its foundation.
