An Oliver Springs man was in stable condition at the University of Tennessee Medical Center on Wednesday evening after being ejected from a vehicle that overturned on Robertsville Road early Saturday morning, authorities said.
Jared M. Coker, 25, was westbound on Robertsville Road in a Cadillac SRX just west of Bermuda Road at about 3:20 a.m. Saturday when he veered right into on-street parking, striking an unoccupied Chrysler sedan.
After the collision, the vehicle Coker was driving swung left, sliding into a yard on Robertsville Road, overturning, and ejecting him through the sun roof, an Oak Ridge Police Department accident report said.
Coker ended up in a neighboring yard with incapacitating injuries, and the SRX came to rest partially in the neighboring driveway, the report said. Coker was taken by ambulance to the UT hospital.
