A one-vehicle accident on Montvale Road near Blockhouse Road Monday afternoon sent a Maryville woman to the hospital.
Charlotte O. Fox, 60, Deer Run Lane, Maryville, was traveling south on Montvale Road near Blockhouse Road at about 2:19 p.m. in a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis when her right side tire dropped off the pavement and traveled across a gravel driveway, according to Blount County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Marian O’Briant,
Fox’s vehicle went airborne and flipped over on its top. She was wearing her seat belt, and the air bags deployed. She was taken via Rural/Metro to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for her injuries, which appeared not to be life-threatening.
Fox was the vehicle’s only occupant.
Blount County Sheriff’s Officers, firefighters and emergency personnel were dispatched to the accident, and traffic on Montvale Road was backed up as a result.
One unidentified motorist parked in a gravel driveway at a residence near the accident for her own safety.
“I thought it was my neighbor who happened to lose control,” the motorist said. “This is a very dangerous road. People sway from left to center all the time, it’s unbelievable. I just hope the person is OK.”
