A man died after a car slid off the road and hit a tree in Solway on Wednesday morning, authorities said.
The man has been identified, but his name will not be released until relatives have been notified, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office said.
A male passenger is being treated at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, but he has not been identified yet.
Officers on the scene said the car slid off the road due to weather and speeding, the KCSO said. Neither man was wearing a seatbelt. They were in a 1996 Toyota Corolla.
The fatal crash occurred at 9:40 a.m. on Solway at Guinn.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
