Accident in driveway sends Sullivan Co. woman to hospital

SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – A lunch time accident in a Sullivan County driveway sent a woman to the hospital with minor injuries.

A Sullivan County deputy told News Channel 11 the driver of a vehicle pulled up the driveway of the home in the 100 block of Old Hickory Tree Road near the intersection with Bristol Caverns Highway around noon on Monday.

The deputy said when the driver got out of the car, she thought that the vehicle was in park, but it was actually still in gear. When the car started rolling back down the driveway, the deputy said she tried to get back in and put it in to park.

The vehicle ended up dragging the woman several feet down the driveway before coming to rest against a tree.

We were told that the woman was awake and talking to the EMS workers. She was transported to the hospital with what is described as minor injuries.

The name of the victim has not been released.
