LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – WLAF’s Charlie Hutson has shared some odd wreck scene photos with us these past couple of months like the pick-up truck lodged in the side of Peoples Bank of the South to the flower bed -fire hydrant wreck in front of Russell Towers. That’s not counting two separate vehicles in buildings; the Kincaid building and most recently next to that building, the Security Insurance building. All four of these unusual wrecks have taken place since Oct. 25. Now a fifth such head scratching wreck is added to the list after a Wednesday night incident in Downtown La Follette.
Last night just before 9 pm, a Ford Fiesta drove off the dead-end of West Ash Street by the First Presbyterian Church. It plunged over the bank and lodged at the back of the former H & R Block building on South Tennessee Ave. across the street from the old post office.
According to witnesses, two (male and female) people exited the white Fiesta on the passenger side and climbed on top of the H & R Block building’s roof. Members of the La Follette Fire Department and La Follette EMR rescued them from the roof and treated the man and woman on the scene. Campbell County EMS transported the patients to the La Follette Medical Center. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 12/31/2020-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
