Investigators say a Maury County deputy was not wearing his seat belt at the time of a deadly crash.

Deputy Jimmy Tennyson was headed west on Iron Bridge Road in his patrol car on Friday morning when he crossed the center line on a curve. He over-corrected, went down an embankment and hit a tree.

Tennyson died on Saturday. His visitation is being held Monday evening and his funeral is Tuesday.
