The driver of a pickup truck involved in a head-on crash about 2 p.m. Monday on Bandy Road at Hartman Lane was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and other offenses, Trooper Matthew Blankenship, of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, said in a report.
Jerry Doan, 31, of Greeneville, was also charged with driving without a license, having no proof of insurance and misuse of registration.
A man and a woman in a 2004 Kia Sorento also involved in the crash suffered injuries that required hospital treatment.
The other driver, 27-year-old Crystal Schuck, of Greeneville, was cited for failure to yield the right of way.
The Kia driven by Schuck was westbound on Bandy Road. A 1987 Mazda pickup truck driven by Doan was eastbound on Bandy Road, the report said.
At the 'Y' intersection with Hartman Lane, Schuck drove into the oncoming lane "in an attempt to enter Hartman Lane simultaneously when (Doan) was attempting to continue east on Bandy Road. A head-on crash occurred in the eastbound lane of Bandy Road," the report said.
After the collision, the Kia sport utility vehicle struck the side of a tree and came to rest in a yard in the 300 block of Bandy Road. The pickup truck remained in the road.
Doan left the scene on foot and was located near his house a short time later, the report said.
Crystal Schuck and passenger Kyle Schuck were taken to Laughlin Memorial Hospital by Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Service. They were not listed as patients on Tuesday afternoon.
Doan was also treated at the emergency room of Laughlin Memorial Hospital, the report said.
"It was noted that a 'yield' sign is not currently present for westbound traffic on Bandy Road that intend to merge left onto Hartman Lane," the report said.
The Greene County Sheriff's Department and members of the DeBusk Volunteer Fire Department assisted at the scene.
