A Limestone teenager was killed late Friday night when the car in which she was riding was struck by a suspected impaired driver near Telford.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 19-year-old Billy Baker, Jr. of Limestone was traveling on Stockyard Road just before 11:00 Friday night when his 1995 Jeep Cherokee ran the stop sign at Highway 11-E and collided with a 2016 Nissan Versa driven by 36-year-old Summer Cradic of Johnson City.
The impact caused 18-year-old Sierra Rollins of Limestone to be ejected from the driver's side of the car, resulting in her death. According to the THP, Rollins was not wearing a safety belt which could have made a difference in the outcome.
Cradic along with another passenger, 27-year-old Taray Rollins Jr. of Greeneville, were injured in the crash. Baker was also injured, and preliminary evidence showed that alcohol and drug usage by Baker may have been a factor in causing the accident.
Criminal charges are pending following Friday night's crash, according to the THP.
