Man shoots himself after wife dies in golfcart accident

Police say an Anderson Co. man killed himself after his wife died in a golf cart accident Friday.

John C. Clark and his wife Kathryn C. Clark were traveling in a golf cart from their home on Stardust Lane to the marina where John worked.

The cart overturned and killed Kathryn. According to the report, the couple had been drinking.

John attempted CPR on his wife before walking home and arming himself with a handgun.

John told his son he was going to commit suicide, threatening to shoot anyone who came near him.

His son left the residence and informed deputies at the accident scene. Authorities arrived to find John dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Chief Deputy Mark Lucas with the Anderson County Sheriff's Department said, "This has to be one of the most tragic events I have ever seen."

Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating the golf cart accident since it occurred on a public road.
