THP: Kingston woman hit by van, killed on I-40

A 20-year-old Kingston woman survived a violent one-car accident on Interstate 40 in Roane County late Saturday night but was killed when she ran into the eastbound lanes of traffic and was struck by a vehicle. The Tennessee Highway Patrol says that 20-year-old Lindsay Gouge had wrecked her 2009 Ford Focus just before 11 pm near mile marker 359 and that the car had apparently rolled several times. She made it out of the car, but troopers say that after she did, she ran into the eastbound lanes of traffic where she was struck by a van driven by a Sevierville man. She was rushed to UT Medical Center by ambulance but died en route. An autopsy will be performed, as will a toxicology screen as officials hope to figure out why she had run into the roadway. No charges are expected to be filed.
