The Knox County Sheriff’s Office has identified the 19-year-old killed in a Wednesday morning crash in Solway.
The young man was James Cryder, the KCSO said.
His passenger, 20-year-old Jacob Raley, is being treated at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville.
Authorities said that Cryder died after a 1996 Toyota Corolla slid off the road at the intersection of Solway and Guinn roads and hit a tree. Officers on the scene said the car slid off the road due to weather and speeding.
Neither Cryder nor Raley was wearing a seatbelt, authorities said.
The fatal crash occurred at 9:40 a.m. on Solway at Guinn.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
