A 37-year-old woman died in a two-vehicle crash in Clinton on Friday, according to WYSH Radio in Clinton.
The head-on collision was reported Friday evening on North Main Street in front of the Anderson County Health Department building in Clinton.
The crash killed Elizabeth Rau of Clinton and injured the driver of the second vehicle, Stanley Slover of Rocky Top, WYSH reported.
The crash was reported to dispatchers at about 5:15 p.m. Friday. Clinton Police Department investigators determined that Rau had been driving north in a Hyundai Sonata when her vehicle “crossed over the center line into the oncoming lane of travel,” and collided with Slover’s Dodge pickup, WYSH reported.
Rau died from her injuries, while Slover was transported by ambulance to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville for treatment of his injuries. Both drivers were wearing their seat belts, and neither driver was suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, WYSH reported.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
