Woman seriously hurt in ATV crash

CROSSVILLE — A Cumberland County woman is being treated in a regional trauma center and the teen who was driving the ATV that crashed, resulting in her injuries, now faces a felony vehicular assault charge.

The crash occurred Saturday around 10 p.m. on Old Gordon Rd., just off Dogwood Rd., according to Deputy Sean Mullikin’s report. In addition to one ATV driver’s arrest, two witnesses at the scene were charged with underage drinking.

Charged with vehicular assault is Jared Dewayne Beaty, 19, 117 L Henry Rd. He was placed under $45,000 bond and is to appear in General Sessions Court June 10 to answer the charge.

Injured in the crash was a victim identified as Jennifer Kaiti Hubbard, who goes by her middle name. She was rushed to Cumberland Medical Center by ambulance and later was transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville for treatment of serious injuries.

Reports at the scene claimed Hubbard suffered head and neck injuries including a laceration to her left ear.

Witnesses told the deputy that the group had been riding four-wheeler trails across Black Mountain most of the day and had exited the wooded area on Old Gordon Rd. Witnesses and Beaty told the Mullican he attempted to pass a utility vehicle on the left side and struck a ditch, causing his ATV to turn over on its side and throwing the victim and Beaty from the vehicle. Beaty added that he flipped the ATV back onto its wheels, but when he went to check on Hubbard, she told him to “just get away from me.”

When Mullikin arrived on the scene, he found the ATV loaded in the back of a pickup truck and Beaty sitting in the pickup. Hubbard was found lying in the ditch.

Sgt. Rick Lanzilotta and the District Attorney’s Office was also involved in the investigation.
