A man was jailed Tuesday after a fatal wreck Monday on Eagle Furnance Road south of Rockwood.
Johnny Ray Foland, 50, is charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, DUI, driving on a revoked license, implied consent violation and leaving the scene of an accident involving a fatality.
Teri L. Stephenson, 54, was killed in the wreck. She had a Rockwood address.
Trooper Mike Beaty of the Tennessee Highway Patrol reported that Stephenson was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Foland.
He was traveling westbound and failed to negotiate a curve.
Beaty reported that Foland overcorrected, lost control and struck a utility pole then a tree.
The car ended up on its top.
Another passenger in the car, 51-year-old David W. Foland, was injured.
Both Folands were wearing seatbelts; Stephenson was not, according to the report. In Beaty’s opinion that could have made a difference.
Jail records listed Johnny Foland’s address as 110 Bournemouth Drive, Rockwood.
