    The Tennessee Highway Patrol is releasing new information about the second victim Thursday's landslide in Hawkins County.

    According to the report, the second driver was a 48-year-old Eidson, Tennessee man.

    Troopers say he was driving a Chevy Envoy along Highway 70 when the road collapsed, and the SUV rolled down the mountain side.

    A Tennessee Department of Transportation spokesperson said Thursday, the driver was able to crawl out of the vehicle.

    The highway patrol says the man is hospitalized, and his condition is stable.

    A second driver, Steven Lawson from Jonesborough, was killed when his vehicle was tossed down the mountain side by the landslide.
