Vehicle Rolls Over West Knox County Woman
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office responded to 1244 Vale View Road in West Knox County at 9:24 a.m. on Friday morning after a vehicle rolled over a woman and trapped her underneath.
According to Crash Reconstructionist Officer Scott DeArmond, 56-year-old Cheryl A. Swenton of 1244 Vale View Road was trying to push a grey 1998 Mercedes 190E (which was in neutral without the engine running) out of the way to get another vehicle out of her garage. When she approached the back of the Mercedes , it rolled back, pulled her underneath the vehicle, and dragged her across the street. When officers arrived, she was still trapped under the vehicle. Swenton was extricated from underneath the vehicle and transported to UT Medical Center by Rural Metro for non-life-threatening injuries.
