Winter continues its torment

A man was found unresponsive on the side of Interstate 40 Monday afternoon. Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton responded and called for an ambulance when he arrived at the scene.

“I don’t know if he was suffering from frost bite, hypothermia or having a medical issue,” Stockton said. “It was hard to tell.”

Stockton said they were eventually able to get the unresponsive man moving.

“He may have been a transient,” Stockton said. “I’m not sure.”
