Two unrestrained teens were injured Monday when the vehicle in which they were riding hydroplaned on Interstate 40 in Cocke County.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol said the 2:41 p.m. incident occurred in the westbound lanes near the 443 mile marker.
Marjorie Beasley, 51, Rincon, Georgia was operating a 2011 Honda Pilot when it hydroplaned during a heavy rainstorm, left the roadway on the left, striking the guardrail, then traveled across the highway striking the guardrail on the right side.
During the sequence of events, the back seat passengers, Michael Beasley and Parkey McCoy, both 14, were ejected onto the roadway. Troopers said the teens were not wearing their seat belts. Both, along with the driver who was restrained, were taken to the UT Medical Center by First Call EMS. All three reportedly are in stable condition.
A fourth occupant, John Beasley, 54, was not injured, and no charges were filed.
