3 Juvenile Siblings Injured In I-24E Crash In Coffee County

CREATED Feb 11, 2014

COFFEE COUNTY, Tenn. – Three juvenile siblings were injured in a crash Monday on Interstate 24 in Coffee County.

A report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol said those injured were the 17-year-old driver, and passengers, ages 12 and 14. All three, who were wearing their seatbelts, were taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, where their conditions were unknown.

The THP said their vehicle was traveling eastbound on I-24 near the 101 mile marker when the vehicle swerved, causing the driver to over correct. The driver then lost control, went off the left shoulder, and into the median. The vehicle rolled several times before coming to a stop in the westbound lanes.

No identities were released, thought investigators said the siblings had dual residence in Coffee and Rutherford County.

The investigation was ongoing.
