BY KRISTEN BUCKLES
A passenger was critically injured after being ejected from a Honda Accord as the result of an accident on Saturday, according to Jessie Lowery, chief of the Town of Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department.
The accident occurred at approximately 4:30 p.m., near the intersection of West Andrew Johnson Highway and Dulaney Road.
The accident involved a Ford Explorer with a driver and a passenger, and the Honda Accord with a driver and two passengers, Lowery said.
"The passenger in the Honda ... was ejected from the car and was transported with head injuries by [Wings Air Rescue]."
The Honda was from Morristown, while the Explorer was from Knoxville, Lowery added.
There were no injuries to the driver or passenger in the Ford Explorer, which was traveling northbound on U.S. 11E, he said.
The driver of the Honda Accord complained of back pain but refused treatment, according to Lowery.
Sheriff's Department Deputy Randy Christy said Saturday that the air-lifted passenger was in critical condition.
However, names of those involved in the accident, or other accident details from the department, were not available today, Sheriff Steve Burns said this morning.
The sheriff said that it could be several days before a report is issued, adding that the wreck is still under investigation.
"Some (investigations) are more complicated than others" and take more time, Burns said.
Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services Director Robert Sayne said this morning that EMS was not able to positively identify the woman because she was unresponsive on the scene.
