OAK RIDGE (WATE) – One person was killed in a two-vehicle crash Thursday evening in Oak Ridge.

The Oak Ridge Police Department says they were called to Weigel’s, 2385 Oak Ridge Turnpike, around 6:30 p.m. They say a 2015 Toyota Prius driven by Lawrence Landau of Oak Ridge was pulling out of the parking lot and into the path of a 2013 Dodge pickup truck, driven by Heather Miller of Knoxville, which was hauling a livestock trailer.

Landau was taken to UT Medical Center by ambulance where he later died. Miller and her juvenile passenger were taken to another hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. A horse in the trailer was not hurt.

The crash remains under investigation.
