Both Michael Montgomery and Nancy Grimm were flown to Johnson City Medical Center following the collision near the place where West Summer Street becomes Blue Springs Parkway.
Grimm’s sister, Sheila Vonglis, said this morning that Grimm was in critical condition in the intensive care unit. She said Grimm suffered broken ribs, a broken leg, a broken arm, a broken hand and massive head injuries.
Vonglis said her sister’s prognosis is uncertain. She’s unconscious and is using a ventilator to help her breathe. She had one surgery on her head yesterday.
Montgomery was listed in stable condition, a hospital spokesperson said.
Grimm was driving off an exit ramp from the westbound U.S. 11E Bypass onto West Summer Street when she was struck in the driver’s side by Montgomery’s truck, Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Director Robert Sayne said.
Montgomery was traveling on West Summer heading toward Blue Springs Parkway and Mosheim, Sayne said.
Both victims were trapped in their vehicles, he said.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol, the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad, the Greeneville Police Department, the Greeneville Fire Department and Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services responded.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
