NEWPORT-A violent rear-end crash on Highway 25/70 east of Newport, near Holt's Used Cars, on Monday, June 3, left two passengers in one vehicle dead - the driver's six-year-old son, and her father, the Tennessee Highway Patrol reported.

Lisa Renea McMahan, 37, of 3184 Old Parrottsville Highway, in Parrottsville, was driving a 2000 Honda Accord eastbound on Highway 25/70 when, around 4:30 p.m., a 2004 Ford Explorer driven by Willie C. Stokely, 83, of 3316 Williams Road, in Hartford, rear-ended the Honda as it was turning left into a driveway at 1564 East Highway 25/70, stated THP Trooper Randy Spurgeon.

Killed in the crash were Lisa McMahan's two passengers: Dylan Todd Sisk, who apparently lived with her in Parrottsville, and Charles Othell McMahan, 62, of 1564 East Highway 25/70, according to Trooper Spurgeon.

Lisa McMahan was transported by ambulance to Newport Medical Center for treatment of "possible injuries", the report stated.
