Vickie L. Powell, a 52-year-old Spring City, Tenn. resident, died in a two-car crash on U.S. Highway 27 north of Spring City on Friday afternoon.
According to early Tennessee Highway Patrol reports, 62-year-old Victor Kirkpatrick of Rockwood, Tenn., was pulling out of a private lot when his 2000 Chevrolet crossed northbound lanes, into “[Powell’s] lane of travel.”
Neither of the drivers were wearing seat belts.
Powell’s vehicle reportedly struck the Chevrolet’s driver door. Powell was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Kirkpatrick was airlifted to Erlanger, and he is listed in stable condition.
According to the THP, Kirkpatrick was driving on a revoked license for DUI third offense. Blood-alcohol content and drug tests have been requested by state highway authorities. Those results were not available Friday night.
