The man’s nephew was also in the car, but he survived and was transported to the hospital, according to WSMV 4.

The storm forecasts included warnings about power outages and tree damage due to strong winds moving through east Tennessee, ABC 6 reported.

A 5-year-old boy was fatally killed after a tree fell onto his mother’s car in Jackson, Georgia, earlier this year.
