Pendergrass crash
A Gatlinburg man was injured on Thursday when he pulled from the Cracker Barrel Restaurant in Newport and was struck by a southbound vehicle on the Cosby Road. Newport Patrol Officer Brandon Cassidy said the 10:15 am crash occurred when Robert Pendergrass, 67, failed to yield the right of way. His 1992 Honda was struck in the passing lane by a 2018 Nissan operated by Tiffany Busler, 32, of Newport. First Call EMS transported Pendergrass from the scene and he later was flown to the UT Medical Center in Knoxville. A hospital spokesperson says the injured man has since been released.
