Crash When Wheel Comes Off Car Overturns Jeep

Traffic was tied up in the area of East Bernard Avenue for about 30 minutes Monday afternoon after a wheel came off a car, which sideswiped an oncoming Jeep Liberty and caused the Jeep to overturn on its roof.

The wreck happened about 4:50 p.m. about 300 feet west of Professional Plaza Drive, Greeneville police Lt. Kevin Gass said in a crash report.

The Jeep driver, 78-year-old Scott W. Stanley, of 1400 West Vann Road, was freed from the overturned vehicle by members of Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services. He was taken to Takoma Regional Hospital where he was treated and later released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The driver of the car, Jason M. Zaborowski, 38, of 40 Hillside Drive, was not injured, the report said.

Zaborowski was issued violations for having no proof of insurance and an expired registration, the report said.

The car was headed toward Church Street and the Jeep was driving toward Tusculum Boulevard.

Zaborowski told officers that while driving "the left front wheel and assembly broke or fell off of his vehicle, causing his vehicle to travel across the center lane and strike (Stanley's) vehicle," the report said.

After impact, Stanley's Jeep struck a curb and flipped over on its top.

"(Zaborowski) stated that he was unable to stop his vehicle and had to wait for it to stop sliding," coming to a stop a distance down the road.

The Jeep overturned and came to rest in the road in front of the Guy Jones Agency, 428 E. Bernard Ave.

Wanda Malone, owner of The Twin's Place hair salon at 426 E. Bernard Ave., was inside with a customer when she heard the crash.

"It looked pretty bad. It scared me," Malone said. "The guy that was in the Jeep, his airbag deployed. Somebody ran up to him and said help was on the way."

Traffic was diverted away from East Bernard Avenue between East Church Street and Tusculum Boulevard for about 30 minutes.
