I-81 crash injures both drivers
The Tennessee Highway Patrol says the investigation is continuing into a Saturday evening crash on Interstate 81 in Jefferson County. Dillon Smith, 24, White Pine was southbound at 8:50 pm when his 2002 Chrysler PT ran into the rear of another vehicle near the 1 mile marker. The second vehicle, a 2005 GMC Sierra, was operated by Andrew Futrell, 26, Harriman, and he had three passengers with him. According to the THP, after Smith rear ended Futrell, the collision caused Futrell to skid into the left lane and into the median on the left side of the roadway where it went into a rollover and rolled several times before coming to rest on its driver side in the median. The Smith vehicle eventually came to rest on the right shoulder. Futrell who was wearing a seat belt was flown by medical helicopter from the scene to the UT Medical Center in Knoxville. Smith was taken by the Jefferson County EMS to Morristown Hamblen Hospital.
