An Oliver Springs man died in a two-car crash on Schaad Road on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
James Shultz, 50, was driving west on Schaad Road in a 2005 Chevrolet Impala when he apparently crossed the center line and hit an eastbound 2004 Ford Escape driven by Kevyn Sterchi, 18, of Knoxville, the Knoxville Police Department said, citing the findings of a preliminary investigation.
Shultz was not wearing a seatbelt, the KPD said in a Thursday morning statement. He was taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Sterchi was also taken to UT Medical Center, according to the statement from KPD spokesman Darrell DeBusk. She had what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, DeBusk said.
The crash occurred at about 2 p.m. Wednesday on Schaad Road at Grassy Creek Way.
