A Mt. Juliet man was killed in a one-vehicle accident early Sunday morning on Beckwith Road near Posey Hill Road.

The victim was identified as Brent E. Moore, 28, of Beckwith Road, Mt. Juliet.

A report from the Tennessee Department of Safety said Moore was driving a 2001 Ford F250 pickup truck southbound on Beckwith Road when it crossed the centerline and went off the left side of the road and into a ditch, striking a tree. The vehicle continued on another 75 feet, the report said, coming to a final rest and catching on fire.

The accident happened about 2:30 a.m., Sunday.

Moore was not wearing his seat belt, however, the trooper who investigated the accident noted in the report that wearing one would not have made a difference.

There was no indication that alcohol or drug abuse were involved, but because a fatality occurred, both tests were requested as is standard in such cases.

Speed was not a factor in the accident, either, the report said.
