Cleveland Browns owners father in car crash
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A family spokesman says Pilot Flying J truck stop founder and father of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is all right after being involved in a three-car accident.
Spokesman Tom Ingram says Jim Haslam was examined and released by his doctor after the Monday wreck.
According to Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk, Haslam's 2014 Mercedes drifted across the center line, sideswiped an SUV and then went off the roadway and struck a wall. The third vehicle then hit the rear of the Mercedes.
Haslam played tackle for the University of Tennessee and founded Pilot Corp. in 1958 with a single gas station in Gate City, Virginia. The privately held company now has annual revenues of more than $30 billion.
