The Tennessee Highway Patrol has released the name of a young mother who died in a fatal crash on a Union County highway Friday morning.
Alexa Stabile, 21, of Chattanooga, was driving a Ford Mustang on Hwy. 33 southwest of Maynardville when she veered into oncoming traffic and struck two other vehicles, Trooper Chris Hutchins said in a crash report.
Stabile, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was killed. Her infant child, who was properly restrained, was injured. The drivers of two other vehicles were also hurt, along with a passenger in one of those vehicles.
The highway closed for a few hours following the 11:28 a.m. accident but has since reopened.
All of the injured were transported to UT hospital.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
