One Driver Crossed

The Center Line;

3 Children In Van,

2 Others In Car



Seven people, including five children, were taken to local hospitals following a two-vehicle crash just after 5 p.m. Wednesday in the 400 block of Lick Hollow Road, sheriff's Lt. Eddie Yokley said.

None of the injuries is believed to be life-threatening.

Yokley said Phillip Johnson, 33, of 910 Lick Hollow Road, was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu when he crossed the center line of the two-lane road and struck a 2009 Honda Odyssey van driven by Danielle Robinson, 38, of 780 Tyne Gray Road.

Johnson and his two children, ages 5 and 6, were taken by Greene County Greeneville Emergency Medical Services to Takoma Regional Hospital.

Robinson and her three children, ages 1-1/2, 3 and 8, were taken by EMS to Laughlin Memorial Hospital.


The children in both vehicles were taken to hospitals as a precautionary measure, Yokley said. All were wearing child safety restraints at the time of the crash.

"They were all pretty shaken up," Yokley said.

Danielle Robinson was taken to Laughlin Memorial Hospital, treated, and later released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Phillip Johnson was treated at Takoma Regional Hospital and transferred to Holston Valley Medical Center. His condition was not immediately available this morning.

A charge of driving on a suspended license is pending against Johnson, Yokley said.

Also on scene were members of the DeBusk Volunteer Fire Department and the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad.


Johnson was the driver in several other wrecks investigated by law enforcement in recent years.

Johnson was charged by sheriff's deputies with failure to give immediate notice of an accident following a one-vehicle crash March 26 in the 2700 block of Stone Dam Road. That crash caused damage to private property, according to a report.

The case is pending.

Johnson was also the driver of a Kia sedan in April 2010 that collided head-on on Johnson Road with a pickup truck driven by a 16-year-old.

Johnson suffered serious injuries in that crash, and his 3-year-old daughter was also injured, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

The two occupants of the truck were also injured.

Troopers in that incident said the initial investigation showed that the Kia sedan crossed the centerline of the road before the collision took place.
