Inexperience, speeding and erratic driving were cited as the cause of a single-vehicle accident in Mosheim at 7 p.m. Monday in which two teenagers were possibly injured.
According to witnesses, the driver, 16-year-old Brant D. Morrow, of 34 Mountain View Drive, Mosheim, was traveling north on Big Springs Drive, just south of the road on which he lives.
He was driving a green, 2004 Ford Explorer, in which 15-year-old Logan Hinkle, of 888 Blue Springs Road, was a passenger.
Deputy Greg Tipton said in the accident report that Morrow crested the hill at a high rate of speed, crossing the center line and overcorrecting. This caused the vehicle to hit an embankment with the passenger rear before coming back across the roadway and center line.
"The SUV rolled and came back upon its wheels, then hit two power poles with the driver side," according to Tipton's report.
"The collision broke both poles before [the SUV] came to rest back on the road," the report said.
Morrow was listed as having incapacitating injuries and was taken by Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to Johnson City Medical Center, according to the report.
Morrow was not listed as a patient at the hospital this morning.
Hinkle was listed as having possible injuries.
Both teenagers were wearing their seat belts, and drugs and alcohol were not believed to have been factors in the accident.
The Greene County Sheriff's Department, the EMS and the Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene.
