321 Crash 4 Hospitalized

An early morning crash on Hwy. 321 just north of the I-40 interchange sent four people to area hospitals. Details of the crash were sketchy but apparently one of the vehicles crossed the centerline and struck the other vehicle. Three persons in the Ford F-150 pickup truck were transported by ambulances to the hospital. The driver of the Honda Civic was the most critically injured patient. He was flown by Life Star to UT hospital suffering from multiple serious injuries including compound fractures of both legs. He was pined in the wreckage till Loudon County Rescue Squad personnel were able to free him from the wreckage. None of the injured parties were thought to be from Loudon County. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
