Around 9:15 on March 31st, a Sheriff’s deputy was patrolling in the 4300 block of Sevierville Road when he discovered a crashed vehicle. Deputies with the Traffic Safety Unit responded to the scene. The investigation determined that the driver was traveling south when his vehicle exited the right side of the road, crossed a driveway, and continued for a short distance before colliding with a tree. While the driver was wearing a seatbelt, the passenger was not. The vehicle’s airbags did not deploy in the crash. Additional details about the crash are still under investigation.
