A 42-year-old Roane County mother was killed in a car crash on Saturday.

The wreck happened around 3 p.m.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol fatality report, Teresa Duff was traveling south on Gallaher Road in a 2003 Kia Sorento when she ran off the road.   

“The driver overcorrected and went across both lanes of the roadway to the left,” the report said.

“The vehicle left the left side of the roadway, went airborne and struck a tree with the passenger side of the vehicle. The vehicle came to final rest on all four tires and caught on fire.”

The report said Duff was not wearing a seat belt, but added that it would not have made a difference in the crash.

A toxicology test was performed that will test for drugs and alcohol.

Duff graduated from Roane County High School in 1987.

She was Roane County’s eighth traffic fatality of 2012.
