CARYVILLE (WATE) – Four people were sent to the hospital after a two vehicle crash Monday night on Interstate 75 in Campbell County.
The crash was reported around 9 p.m. in the southbound lanes near the Anderson County line. Tennessee Highway Patrol says a Chevrolet truck driven by Carl Broyhill, 56 of Sevierville, was going south pulling a trailer with a car on it. The right rear of the trailer was hit by a Hyundai Accent driven by Constance Wren, 22, of Oneida, while the vehicles were negotiating a downhill curve, causing both vehicles to come to an uncontrolled rest.
Carl Broyhill and his passenger, Michael Broyhill, 30, were both injured and taken to the hospital by LifeStar helicopter. A 5-year-old girl was also in the vehicle and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Wren was also injured and taken to LaFollette Medical Center.
Carl Broyhill was charged with operating an unregistered vehicle, unlawful removal of license plate and not having proof of financial responsibility. Charges are pending against Wren as investigators look at factors that may have contributed to the crash.
Tennessee Department of Transportation said the interstate was closed in both directions for a time to allow LifeStar helicopters to land. The northbound lanes opened a short time later and all lanes were back open by shortly after 11 p.m.
