Hartford Road crashes
Bridge repairs on I-40 has traffic slowed up east of Newport, and so a number of eastbound vehicles have chosen to use the parallel Hartford Road as an alternative. That has resulted in jammed traffic on the narrow, two-laned roadway. On Monday, Cocke County Deputy Kevin Ball investigated a crash near Lindsey Gap Road involving a Waynesville, North Carolina man. His auto left the roadway in a hard curve, went over the embankment and struck a tree, but no injuries resulted in the 1:50 pm incident. A short time later, Andrew John Meyer, 41 of Minnesota, was approaching the same curve when he observed stopped traffic due to the first crash. His 2003 Dodge pickup also left the roadway went down the embankment and struck a tree. The vehicle came to rest against boulders and the tree. Officer Ball says Meyer was traveling too fast for the conditions and may have also been impaired. Meyer sustained a suspected serious injury and First Call EMS transported him to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville.
