Information from WYSH Radio
The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating a hit and run accident that occurred Monday evening in Oliver Springs and sent a man to the hospital.
Derek Jones, 23, said he was jogging on Old Batley Road at around 6:45 p.m. Monday when a small, black car hit him from behind. Jones landed on the hood of the car and struck the windshield, but the driver fled the scene without stopping.
Jones was airlifted to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for treatment of his injuries, which were not considered life-threatening but were serious enough to keep him out of work.
The THP is continuing its investigation.
