Police investigating crash that killed driver
WVLT Tuesday April 11, 2017

The Oak Ridge Police Department responded to a crash along State Route 95, just south of White Wing Road, on Monday at around 1:57 p.m.

After conducting a preliminary investigation of the crash, officers found that a four-door sedan had been traveling southbound on Highway 95 before crossing over the double yellow line and striking the trailer of a semi-truck in the northbound lane. The driver of the sedan was taken to Fort Loudon Medical Center in Lenoir City by ambulance. The driver later died from his injuries.

A third vehicle was involved in the crash. The vehicle went off the roadway from the northbound lane but did not make contact with the sedan or the semi-truck. No other injuries were reported from the scene.

State Route 95 was closed for just over two hours while the Oak Ridge Police Department and additional agencies responded to the scene.

Officials said the incident is still under investigation as of Monday evening. No names were released.

 


Tennessee high court favors officer in 'no trespassing' case
AP Tuesday April 11, 2017

The Tennessee Supreme Court has sided with police who found a methamphetamine lab on the property of man who posted a "no trespassing" sign near his driveway.

A Supreme Court news release says the majority ruled against James Robert Christensen, Jr. on Friday.

The opinion says in August 2013, two police officers drove down Christensen's unobstructed driveway past "no trespassing" signs, approached and knocked on his door without a warrant. When Christensen opened the door, the officers smelled methamphetamine.

The officer forced open the door and found a methamphetamine lab and several guns.

Before his trial, Christensen contended the evidence was seized during an unconstitutional search because of the "no trespassing" signs.

The opinion says the police were not trespassing and performed an allowable "knock-and-talk."

In-state Tuition for Illegal Immigrants Debated
AP Monday April 10, 2017

Twenty states already offer cheaper in-state college tuition to students who are in the United States illegally.

Legislation making its way through the Tennessee Legislature would make Tennessee the 21st.

Supporters in states where the tuition benefit is available say the policy has boosted Latino enrollment and has helped these students contribute to the economy. Opponents say the policy wrongly rewards immigrants who entered the country illegally.

The debate has been revived in some states as President Donald Trump pursues tougher immigration policies.
