A 40-year-old Maryville woman was injured during a one-vehicle accident on Montvale Road in Maryville Tuesday afternoon.
Kristi Danielle McCarter, Pineview Road, was traveling north on Montvale Road in a 1995 Buick GS at about 4 p.m. She reached to get her cell phone off the floorboard and ran off the road, striking a power pole and breaking it in half, according to a Blount County Sheriff’s Office report.
McCarter’s vehicle landed on its side, and the guy wires connected to the pole wrapped around the vehicle. Firefighters with the Blount County Fire Department had to cut McCarter out of the vehicle, using the “jaws of life” device.
McCarter was alert and talking with the firefighters and sheriff’s deputies on the scene.
McCarter was taken via Rural/Metro to Blount Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and released.
