NEWPORT-Jasmine Sells, 16, of 445 Trentham Road, in
Newport, was driving a 1998 Mercury Mystique in the rain Wednesday, headed west
on New Cave Church Road, before Splashaway Road, when the lost control of the
vehicle, hit a tree, and overturned into a low-water creek below the road.
Miraculously, Sells suffered only minor scratches and
abrasions, said Lt. C.J. Ball of the Cocke County Sheriff's Department.
Sells was teary-eyed and understandably emotional
following the wreck, which occurred at about 3:30 p.m., the Cocke County
Sheriff's Department reported.
Lt. C.J. Ball said Sells had just gotten out of school
and was driving on the rain-splattered "oily" road when she lost
control of the vehicle.
