News


Three people are being checked out at a local hospital after an SUV slammed into a home in North Knoxville Wednesday afternoon.

The accident happened just before 5 pm.

According to the Knoxville Fire Department, a man driving a Ford Explorer somehow lost control while driving on Edgewood Avenue. He went off the road, and headed directly for a house.

A woman was sitting on the front porch when the SUV came barreling towards her. She managed to get out of the way before the SUV hit, doing a lot of damage to that porch.

Another woman was inside the house. The man driving the SUV and both women in the house will be treated for what appeared to be minor injuries.

There's no word yet on what caused the man to lose control and hit the house.
