Caleb Wilson, a Roane County High School senior, was injured on Tuesday after his car collided with an animal. He had to be flown to the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
Kingston Police Chief Jim Washam said one of his officers, Jamie Melton, was traveling on Gallaher Road and witnessed the accident.
“He was right there at it when the horse ran in front of the kid,” Washam said.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol investigated the crash. Washam said the horse belonged to someone on Little Johnson Valley Road.
