Greystone Man Dies In Wreck On Sharp Curve

A Greystone man was killed Saturday and two others were injured in a single-vehicle wreck at 4:40 p.m. Saturday afternoon along Greystone Road in eastern Greene County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol identified the victim as Michael S. Gunter, 37, of Greystone Road.

John Bowman, assistant chief of the Camp Creek Volunteer Fire Department, said the Gunter was airlifted from the crash site and two others who were injured were transported from the scene by Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services ambulance.

The THP identified the driver as Janet K. Angel, 30, of Round Knob Road. Besides Gunter, the other passenger was identified as Curtis M. Lawn, 18, of Green Mountain Road.

Trooper Eric Wise stated in his report that it appeared that Angel had been drinking, and that further charges are pending.

No one involved in the accident was wearing a seat belt, the trooper stated. He said further that, in his opinion, seat belts would have made a difference in the outcome.

A spokesperson at Laughlin Memorial Hospital said this morning that Angel was treated and released on Saturday.

No information about Lawn was available at either local hospital this morning.


Bowman said the accident occurred on a sharp curve on Greystone Road near its intersection with Reaves Mill Road.

He said it appeared that the vehicle, which appeared to be a Ford Probe, was headed toward Greystone when it ran off the road's right side, overcorrected, then ran off the road on the left side.

Bowman said the vehicle climbed an embankment when it left the road on the left, which caused it to flip back onto the highway. The vehicle then skidded on its top for some distance before coming to rest in a ditch on the road's right side, Bowman said.

According to a report by THP Director of Public Affairs Mike Browning, Trooper Wise stated in his report that the driver, Angel, appeared to have been drinking and/or using drugs, and that tests for both were requested.

The report stated that Gunter appeared to have been drinking, and a test was requested. A test for drugs was also requested, according to the report.

The report stated that Lawn did not appear to have been drinking, and no test was requested.

Bowman said the Camp Creek VFD responded to the wreck with three trucks, but no fire occurred, and the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad also responded.
