Two persons were hurt — at least one critically — and one person arrested in a grinding two-vehicle crash at a Fairfield Glade intersection around midday Wednesday, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
The crash remains under investigation and a preliminary report was issued by THP late Wednesday evening.
Fairfield Glade Police and Fire Department responded to the scene and asked THP for help, considering the serious injuries suffered. Trooper Jeremy Newcomb and members of THP’s Critical Incident Response Team are investigating.
What is known so far is that the crash occurred on Catoosa Blvd. at the intersection with Kingsboro Dr.
Mark Winton, 36, Crossville, was driver of a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban that failed to stop for a stop sign on Kingsboro Dr. and crashed into a 2008 Volkswagen driven by Bonnie Fisher, 70, believed to be from Fairfield Glade.
Fisher and her passenger, Bonnie Harrison, 91, also believed to be from Fairfield Glade, were seriously injured and one of them was rushed to an open field near Food City to be airlifted to a regional trauma center.
THP did not have any information concerning the conditions of the two women at press time.
THP has charged Winton with driving on a revoked license, failure to yield, failure to exercise due car, no proof of insurance and disregard for a stop sign.
