MORRISTOWN (WATE) – A Rutledge woman was sent to the hospital after an accident in Morristown with a logging truck that caused logs to roll onto her vehicle.

Morristown police say a Ford Mustang driven by Kathy Graves, 48, exited East Morris Boulevard around 11:15 a.m. Thursday and tried to merge onto southbound Highway 25E. The truck made contact with a log trailer driven by Roy Grubb, 38, of Kentucky.

The impact caused the logs to shift, breaking the log straps. A portion of them rolled onto Graves’s Mustang.

Graves was flown to UT Medical Center with what are described as non-life threatening injuries.
