A Roane Countian escaped injury following a recent vehicle accident on I-40 in Loudon County. The Tennessee Highway Patrol says a 2017 Chevy Sonic driven by 34-year-old Cassie Tinker of Harriman was traveling east at the 364 mile marker in the left lane when she approached a Mack dump truck parked in the same lane with warning signs indicating an upcoming closure. Tinker hit the trailer the truck had attached, lost control and impacted a guard rail. TDOT had several road signs along with an electronic billboard stating the left lane was closed ahead. Tinker was cited for failure to exercise due care.
