AP/WVLT Sunday June 21, 2015

A semi driver from Tennessee faces a felony charge of driving while fatigued following a 12-vehicle crash on Interstate 55 in suburban Chicago. According to the Associated Press and Local 8 Now, Illinois State Police officials say 52-year-old Mark Tipton of Crossville, Tennessee, will appear in bond court Sunday. Five people were taken to hospitals after the pre-dawn crash Friday. Another nine people were treated at the scene. None of the injuries was considered life-threatening. Investigators say Tipton failed to stop, causing a pileup collision on a section of roadway where two northbound lanes were closed for construction. The ISP says Tipton reported he fell asleep just before the crash and he did not attempt to stop. Authorities say Tipton faces other charges including violating truck driving rules and making a false report.

WVLT Friday June 19, 2015

Local 8 Now reports that Representative Andy Holt, who represents Weakley and part of Obion and Carroll counties, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office rejected a trademark request for the state's new logo. Those with the federal government said it didn't fall within trademark guidelines. The trademark drew widespread anger from Tennesseans when it was revealed state leaders spent $46,000 on it. Governor Bill Haslam defended the decision, saying it brings continuity to the state's departments and agencies. Nashville-based firm GS&F designed the logo over the course of nine months.
