Woman Struck By Van In Store Parking Lot
Is 'Serious But Stable'

The condition of a 77-year-old woman injured when she was struck by a minivan about 7:15 a.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of Wal-Mart has apparently improved.

Jeanette W. Sells, of Greene Mountain Road, was taken to Laughlin Memorial Hospital by Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and later airlifted by Wings Air Rescue to Johnson City Medical Center.

Sells was listed this morning in serious but stable condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.

She was listed in critical condition Tuesday afternoon and was in the Johnson City Medical Center's Intensive Care Unit.

Sells was walking toward Wal-Mart on her way to work when she was struck by a Dodge Caravan driven by 71-year-old Hal R. Hutton, of Peppermint Lane, Greeneville police Officer Eric Scott said in a report.

"As she was crossing the crosswalk in front of the store, she was struck from the side by a vehicle being driven by Mr. Hutton," the report said.

The impact carried Sells several feet "and (she) was partially under the vehicle before the vehicle stopped and backed off of her sprawled body," the report said.

Sells suffered "significant trauma to her head and injuries to her shoulder" and was initially unresponsive, the report said.

Hutton was not cited in connection with the incident. He told officers that he had seen Sells walking across the parking lot "but thought she had stopped and did not notice as she entered the path of his vehicle until after he had struck her."

Members of the Greeneville Fire Department also assisted at the scene.

Video surveillance footage from Wal-Mart security cameras was taken into evidence.
