A woman injured in a two-vehicle collision Saturday afternoon on U.S. 11E remains hospitalized, and charges against the driver of the other car are pending, according to a crash report by sheriff's Deputy Randy Christy.
The wreck happened about 4:20 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of West Andrew Johnson Highway and Dulaney Road.
The report said a 2001 Honda Accord driven by Lashanda Harville, 28, of Whetsel Road, Whitesburg, was westbound on 11E when it turned into the median crossover "and attempted to cross eastbound traffic lanes."
The car was struck by a 1999 Ford Explorer sport utility vehicle driven by Brenda Jo Hayward, 65, of Sevierville Pike, Knoxville.
Neither driver was injured. A passenger in Harville's car, 51-year-old Patricia Brockwell, of Pleasant Avenue, Morristown, was ejected through a rear passenger side window of the car and suffered head injuries, said Jessie Lowery, chief of the Town of Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department.
Brockwell was flown by Wings Air Rescue to Johnson City Medical Center, where she was listed in stable condition Thursday.
After impact, the car went into a spin "causing the rear passenger to be ejected out the rear passenger-door window of (the) vehicle," the report said.
Another passenger in Harville's car, 30-year-old Rodney Brockwell, was not injured.
Rodney Brockwell was wearing a seat belt, while Patricia Brockwell was not, the report said.
A passenger in Hayward's SUV, 59-year-old Donald Hayward, was not injured.
Three witnesses told deputies that Harville "continued through (the) crossover without coming to a stop," the report said.
Charges are pending against Harville, who "had been drinking," the report said.
Other driver actions by Harville listed in the report include "failure to yield the right of way" and "reckless negligent driving."
Results of a blood test on Harville are pending.
