Attempt to pass leads to rollover in Hope
Hope — A Hope man was injured May 5 in a rollover crash on Hatchet Mountain Road, according to the Knox County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responded and found a 2009 Chevrolet Aveo on its side among some small trees.
Terrence Crabtree, 54, of Hope was traveling east behind a vehicle. Crabtree stated the car in front of him was going very slow, so he attempted to pass. Crabtree lost control of his vehicle on a curve, crossed the road in a skid and crashed, rolling over into some trees.
Crabtree had to be extricated from his vehicle by Rockport Extrication Team and Hope Fire Department. Crabtree suffered minor cuts, bruises and a possible broken arm. Crabtree was taken to Pen Bay Medical Center by Union Ambulance.
He was summoned by Sgt. James Moore for driving to endanger.
