JEFFERSON COUNTY, Tenn. — Update:

Billy Ray Martin, 65, of Pikeville, KY died yesterday in the accident that occurred upstream of Douglas Dam in the vicinity of Anchor Down campground.

Billy Ray Martin and Brandon Martin, 30, also of Pikeville, were fishing with a bass club that launched out of Walter’s Bridge Access Area earlier that morning.
At approximately 9:30 a.m., Billy Ray Martin was operating a Bass Cat bass boat that collided with a Stratos bass boat being operated by Chris Sexton, 39, of Corryton, TN.

Sexton and a juvenile male were fishing a bass tournament on the Morristown Marine Team Trail that launched out of Dandridge Access Area.

During the collision, all four occupants who were wearing life jackets were ejected into the water.
