From WRIL -

On Monday June 28, 2021, at 11:51 am there was a single-vehicle fatal accident on Highway 33 near Butcher Lane in Union County.


Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Williams preliminary investigation indicates that 22-year-old Cameron Collins of Pineville was driving a 2010 Ford Fusion northbound on Highway 33 (Maynardville Highway) and crossed the southbound lane of traffic.


The Fusion then continued off the left shoulder traveling down a slight embankment striking a tree coming to rest at the bottom of the embankment. It then caught fire.


Both Collins and his 21-year-old passenger Victoria Wilson of Pineville were assisted by witnesses and removed from the car before it was destroyed by fire. It was not determined if either was wearing a seatbelt or if alcohol or drugs were involved.


While Collins was injured in the accident, Victoria Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene.


Charges against Collins are pending according to the report.
