A 66-year-old TDOT employee miraculously escaped serious injury after sideswiping another vehicle and chopping down two utility poles with the Ford Ranger he was driving Friday. According to the THP, Roger Ruble of Overton County was traveling west on Highway 70 in the Tennessee Department of Transportation-owned 2011 Ranger pickup when he hit an eastbound pickup driven by Randall Blaylock, taking a mirror off the driver’s door of Blaylock’s vehicle. Ruble then left the roadway on the right side and struck two utility poles.
