One injured in single vehicle crash in Cocke County

A number of local emergency agencies come to the assistance of a driver injured in a single vehicle crash in Cocke County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is trying to identify a male driver who was injured in a Thursday single-vehicle crash in Cocke County.

Troopers say the driver of the red 2007 Ford Focus was traveling on South Highway 321 at 10:34 a.m. when he lost control in a curve near the Middle Creek Road intersection.

The southbound vehicle ran off the right side of the roadway, going off a small embankment. Once down the embankment, “the vehicle began to tumble end over end until coming to a final rest upon its top,” the THP says.

The unidentified driver reportedly was partially ejected from the car, and was transported by First Call EMS to the UT Medical Center in Knoxville for treatment of undetermined injuries.

A number of local emergency agencies responded to the scene.

The pending charges are a seat belt violation, violation of the due care law, no insurance, no registration, no driver’s license and DUI.
