Car Runs Off I-75 and Into Creek

Knoxville (WVLT) - A man was not seriously hurt after his car went off the highway, flipped, and landed in some water.

The Knoxville Police Department says 21 year-old James Ooten lost control of his car on the ramp on to I-75 Northbound from Callahan Drive at about 5:00am this morning.

The car ended up nose-down in a small creek.

Ooten was the only person in the car.

His mother was at the scene and told Volunteer TV that her son had only minor injuries.

Police believe alcohol may have been a factor.
