SWANSYLVANIA-Donna Overstreet Hall, 47, of Swansylvania, reportedly died while sledding on her property in Swansylvania in Jefferson County, early Thursday morning, Feb. 13.

Hall, who previously lived in the Carson Springs area, was sledding on her property when the sled went over an embankment and crashed at 12:37 a.m., Jefferson County Sheriff G.W. “Bud” McCoig told The Plain Talk.

The sheriff said that although deputy sheriffs were not called to the scene, he had ruled it was an accident based on conversations with 911 personnel and family members.
