He was speaking with a person at a service station when he observed a car drive by that the Highway Patrol was looking for. As he was attempting to stop the vehicle his car went out of control and struck an oncoming vehicle. The impact caused Trooper Mynatt's patrol car to explode.

I have been trying to get the roadway where Trp. Mynatt' accident occurred named for him, both for his service to Tennessee as a trooper and as a soldier. It is the least Tennessee citizens can do. Just have much luck in getting it done legislatively. Such a shame for a man who his all for Tennessee.
