Three people were pronounced dead at the scene in a horrific motor vehicle crash Sunday afternoon on I-75 in Campbell County. First Responders worked feverishly to save the life of a 10-year old child. The youngster was trapped inside a van that E-911 Officials say ran up under the back of an 18-wheeler.
Lifestar landed on the scene of the accident on I-75 near Exit 141 (the north Caryville exit). Firefighters with the Caryville Fire Department cut the boy out of the van.
The southbound van rammed up under the big rig at 5:26 pm Sunday afternoon. Three others in the van were pronounced dead at the scene.
The 10-year old boy was loaded and flown to a Knoxville hospital. One crew member on the chopper described the youngster as being “fully alert.”
The south bound lanes of I-75 were reopened just before 10:30 pm Sunday night.(WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/09/2018-6AM)
