Turner injured in Monday evening crash
A Cocke County man was seriously injured Monday night when his vehicle went out of control on the Carson Springs Road near the Raines Road intersection. Cocke County Deputy Eric Ramsey said James Lee Turner, 41, Evans Valley Road, Newport, reportedly swerved to miss an animal which ran into the path of his 2001 GMC Jimmy. A 15 year-old male passenger said Turner over-corrected and his auto rolled several times coming to rest in the lawn of a home. Turner who was not wearing a seat belt was ejected as the vehicle rolled, however the teen who was restrained, was not injured. The driver was transported by First Call EMS and then was flown to the UT Medical Center in Knoxville, for treatment. Officer Ramsey said speed may have been a contributing factor.
