An Ohio woman died after her vehicle ran off the roadway, went airborne, and crashed into the median on Interstate 75 in Anderson County on Friday morning.
The driver who died was Sherry Driggers, 67, of Hamilton, Ohio, according to a preliminary crash report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
The one-vehicle fatal crash occurred at about 9:53 a.m. Friday at mile marker 126 north of the Norris exit.
Driggers was driving a 2008 Mazda CX7 when she went off the road and crashed, the THP report said. She was not wearing a seat belt, according to the report.
Anderson County Emergency Medical Services responded to the crash along with THP and other agencies. Anderson County EMS said Driggers’ vehicle was found in the median with moderate damage, and she died in the crash.
The northbound lane of I-75 was shut down while THP investigated Friday.
