A Kentucky man escaped serious injury when he was hit by a car Sunday evening in Clinton.
Clinton police officers were called to the intersection of Hillvale and Seivers Boulevard shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday after a car driven by Jade Richardson of Jellico struck 54-year-old James Thompson of Morehead, Ky. Richardson told police she had been headed north on Hillvale near the entrance to the Hampton Inn when the car in front of her suddenly swerved, revealing Thompson in the middle of the road. She tried to avoid contact but hit Thompson with the left front side of her car. A witness corroborated that version of events.
Thompson was taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center by ambulance for treatment of leg injuries, and Richardson was not hurt. No citations were issued.
